 DMM King Fahd Airport Info & Guide

King Fahd International Airport

Where is King Fahd Airport? King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) (Arabic: مطار الملك فهد الدولي‎) (IATA: DMM, ICAO: OEDF) is located 20 kilometers northwest of Dammam, Saudi Arabia. King Fahd airport is the largest airport in the world in terms of land area (780 km²), making it larger than the nearby country of Bahrain. 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. The new Dammam airport serves the entire Eastern Region of Saudi Arabia and in particular the growing urban complex made up of Dammam, Dhahran, Al Khobar, Qatif, Ras Tanura, while its catchment area also covers Jubail with total population of about 2 million served. The airport is the third major hub for Saudi Arabian Airlines, and furthermore was a hub for short-lived Sama Airlines.
