King Abdullah Will Open Yanbu Airport

King Abdullah will open the newly expanded Prince Abdul Mohsen bin Abdul Airport in the industrial city of Yanbu during his tour of Madinah province.  King Abdul begins his tour on Sunday and will launch various industrial, developmental and human welfare projects.  The tour will last several days. 

A statement said “The King’s visit is aimed at closely monitoring the conditions of citizens in the province as well as understanding requirements for their development.”   King Abdullah last visited Yanbu in July 2005, a month before he became King, and he approved the airport expansion plans at that time.  He also laid the foundations for the second industrial city – Yanbu II, which is expected to bring in new projects worth SR115 billion.
