Saudi Arabia is constructing the colossal King Salman International Airport in Riyadh, set to become the world's biggest airport by 2030. Spanning over 57 square kilometers, the airport will feature six massive parallel runways, recreational facilities, residential units, and a 12-km wide retail space.

The new airport will integrate with the existing terminals of King Khaled International Airport. This project is part of Saudi Arabia’s plans to transform Riyadh into a global logistics hub, enhancing transport links between Saudi Arabia and Western countries.

Promoted as an eco-friendly initiative, King Salman International Airport will incorporate advanced technology to conserve water and electricity. The airport aims to serve over 100 million passengers annually, with a target of handling over 185 million passengers and 3.5 million tonnes of cargo by 2050.

With a budget exceeding USD 29 billion, the airport is a key component of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud’s Vision 2030. Renowned UK-based architecture firm Foster + Partners is handling the design and construction, while Mace Group, another UK-based firm, oversees project management, design management, cost consulting, and procurement.

The airport is expected to create over 150,000 jobs once operational. Vision 2030 aims to boost Saudi Arabia’s social, economic, and cultural growth, solidifying its global presence as a business and tourism hub. Other projects under this initiative include Neom City in Tabuk, the Red Sea project, and The Rig in the Persian Gulf.

Saudi Arabia is also enhancing its reputation as an adventure tourism destination, boasting attractions like King Fahad’s Fountain, Red Sea Mall, Uhud Mountain, Hegra, and King Abdullah Park.
