There are plans to build two new domestic airports in the Riyadh region in Saudi Arabia, the Khaleej Times reported. The High Commission for the Development of Riyadh (HCDR) is looking for suitable sites on which to establish the airports, which will be located on the north and south-east parts of the city.
According to an informed source, one airport will be built in Sudair, north-west of Riyadh, in order to meet the requirements of people living in Al-Ghat, Zulfi, Majmaa and neighbouring villages. The second airport will be in Aflaj to serve the people of Houta and Hareek.
The new airports will reduce pressure on Riyadh’s King Khaled International Airport. At present there are three civilian airports in the Riyadh region.
