King Fahd International Airport

Hotels near King Fahd International Airport, Manama, Bahrain .

The King Fahd International Airport is located 12 miles or about 20 kilometers northwest of Dammam in Saudi Arabia. It currently holds the record for being the largest airport in the world in terms of land area with 780 square kilometers which makes it larger than the Kingdom of Bahrain itself.

The basic infrastructure of the King Fahd International Airport was completed by the end of the year 1990 and was used by the Allied Forces in the first Gulf Way as storage for military aircraft. The airport’s history was marked with controversy with its completion date being so much later than what was originally scheduled and the total cost of completion being over the budgeted and allocated cost.

Transport roads from and to the airport were not in good condition which led many locals to use the airport in nearby Bahrain. The transport roads have been improved as of the time of writing.

The airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to adopt duty-free shops. It also houses several cafeterias, restaurants and banks which are all located on the arrivals area of the airport. The airport also has a mosque that is built on the roof of the parking area and has a design that is a combination of old Islamic styles and modern designs. The mosque can accommodate up to two thousand worshippers.

Hotels near the airport include the Golden Tulip Al Hamra, the Tulip Inn Dammam, the Ramada Rammam Hotel and Suites and many others that are scattered in Dammam, Saudi Arabia and the nearby Al Khobar.
