Airport Modernization Summit 2016

A session at Airport Modernization Summit 2016

Multi billion dollars to modernize airports infrastructure in the Middle East

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is pursuing an unprecedented opportunity in air travel to attain competitive growth. With more than 40 million travelers passing through Saudi Arabia’s airports every year, the Kingdom has identified civil aviation as a key pillar for economic development, earmarking US$5 billion in an initial phase of investments over four years. The objective is to open the sector and modernize it, transforming Saudi Arabia into an important air transport hub for east/west routes that would result in 50,000 new jobs. The longer-term goal is for the civil aviation sector to contribute more than SR25 billion (approximately $6.7 billion) annually to the national economy by 2020.

In the past few years, the Saudi Arabian government faced with burgeoning population growth on one hand and rapid economic development on the other, has channeled billions of dollars towards development of the nation's infrastructure, most of which will be spent on upgrading the kingdom's transport and utilities networks.
