The new Terminal 5 at King Khaled International Airport (KKIA) will begin partial operation on Sunday 22 May, daily Al Riyadh reported.

Terminal 5 will have a 60% handling capacity when it begins hosting internal flights to destinations throughout Saudi.

During the initial period, the first service will be at 5am and the last will be at 1pm.

The terminal is expected to be fully operational by June 20 - with all domestic services in the kingdom eventually being moved from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5.

It will be connected to the Riyadh Metro and will also provide access to 3750 parking spaces.

Terminal 5 is part of an expansion plan to increase capacity at the airport from 14 million passengers a year to 40 million by 2038.
