King Fahd International Airport
King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) is located 20 kilometers northwest of Dammam, Saudi Arabia. It is the largest airport in the world in terms of land area (780 km²). The airport's basic infrastructure was complete by the end of 1990, which allowed the Allied forces engaged in the first Gulf War in early 1991 to use the field for the storage of military aircraft. The General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia finally opened the new Dammam King Fahd International Airport on November 28, 1999 to commercial traffic, and all airlines transferred their operations from Dhahran airport, which had been in use until then.
