RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Oct. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) has officially announced the winning design for the AlUla International Airport terminal during the seventh annual Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, chosen from a competitive global offer. Serving as an extraordinary gateway to AlUla, an iconic archaeological and cultural destination in the Kingdom, the new terminal embodies a blend of modernity, culture and nature.
The terminal, which offers high-end amenities including a luxurious 5-star hotel, spa and a wide range of retail stores, aims to redefine the standards of international airport experiences. Capturing the essence of AlUla from landing to take-off, the terminal is set to be the cornerstone of every visitor's journey. The design promises that the infrastructure will blend perfectly with the natural landscapes of AlUla, ensuring harmony and coexistence.
Through new airport routes and a projected increase in annual passenger capacity from 400,000 to 6 million in its final phase, the terminal will revolutionize AlUla's connectivity with the global stage, making it an easily accessible gem for international travelers.
Beyond the scope of tourism, the project foresees a transformative impact on the community. By attracting more travelers to AlUla, the initiative is set to channel increased revenue into the economy and open up a host of job opportunities for its residents.
Originally conceived a decade ago to serve domestic regional traffic, AlUla International Airport's capabilities have been surpassed by AlUla's growing success as a global destination. This unprecedented demand requires immediate expansions and increased investments, reiterating RCU's unwavering commitment to championing AlUla's growth and global appeal.
