The Southern Terminal in Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah is closing after 40 years of service, the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) announced on Saturday.
Flights to the old airport are gradually being directed to the new Terminal 1, GACA said.
Terminal 1, which has been equipped with the latest technologies, has a capacity to welcome more than 30 million passengers annually.
A total of 220 counters were set up to complete travel procedures, as well as 80 passenger self-service counters, 46 gates for international and domestic flights, and an advanced system for handling passengers’ baggage.
