The expansion plan for King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh was approved by the board of directors of the General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) at a meeting on Monday. The first phase of the expansion project will boost the airports annual capacity to 25 million passengers.
Crown Prince Sultan, deputy premier, and minister of defense and aviation presided over the meeting.
