Dammam airport to get bridge-linked hotel
King Fahd International Airport raises status with five-star project
A five-star hotel will be built at King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) in Dammam, the airport’s general manager told the Saudi Gazette.
Eng. Khalid bin Khalil Al Mizel said his administration has recently awarded a contract for the construction of a five-star hotel.
He said: "The hotel is to provide service for travelers and airport goers, in addition to airlines operating at the airport."
The five-star project will also involve a link to the airport terminal by pedestrian bridge to facilitate ease of access to and from the hotel.
Al Mizel noted that the hotel project implementation would take two years from the date of the signing of contract, adding that "the hotel design and aesthetics have been taken into account to keep up with the basic design of the KFIA and will be next to the airport mosque."
