Jeddah (KSA) | Barcol-Air
This already existing airport in the city of Jeddah is currently undergoing an extensive expansion project. In three phases the airport wants to grow from currently 13 million to 30 million (phase 1), 43 million (phase 2) and 80 million passengers (phase 3). Phase 1 is to be completed in soon.
The vision for KAIA is threefold: increasing the country’s air transportation capacity, enhancing the services provided at the existing airport and embodying the country’s economic spirit.
With these aims in mind, KAIA maximizes its locational advantages. Firstly, the closeness to Jeddah, the gateway to the Two Holy Mosques, is a big benefit. Secondly, the airport’s many business, education and leisure facilities in the adjacent Airport City are designed in harmony with the surroundings. Thirdly, the airport has a transportation center, and high speed rail and light rail transit connections.
Environmental care is high on the list of priorities. Focus is being put on energy efficiency and is being integrated into the design as also controlling the air volumes of the HVAC ducts. This is done by the Barcol-Air Air Flow Measuring Stations (AFMS)
