About The Airport

Riyadh Airports Company (RAC) was established in 2016 as part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s privatization of the aviation sector. Currently, managing operations at King Khalid International Airport in the Saudi Arabian capital, RAC’s vision is to become a regional pioneer in airport management. The team at RAC is currently working on cementing its position as a leader in the civil aviation sector, as it manages a world-class centre for passengers, cargo customers and partners.

King Khalid International Airport was opened in 1983 in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh. Spanning an area of 375 km2, located 35 km from the city centre, the airport contains five passenger terminals, 40 passenger boarding bridges, and a car park with the capacity for 11,600 vehicles. 

Over 51 international and domestic airlines operate through King Khalid International Airport, travelling to more than 105 destinations. With more than 217,000 flights taking off annually from King Khalid International Airport, the facility serves more than 28.5 million passengers annually.
