Dammam Airports Company embarking on a major expansion

Dammam Airports Company (DACO) is embarking on a major expansion of its facilities and passenger and cargo handling capacities.

Turki Abdullah Aljawini, CEO of DACO, said the expansion is aimed at increasing the passenger capacity to 15 million next year from the 10 million last year. “We are expecting a growth of 5-7 per cent annually. Cargo handling and baggage capacities are also being increased by adapting smart technology. Our aim is to give passengers all facilities to enhance their experience.”

The airport authority is also planning to establish a bonded zone, similar to airport free zones elsewhere, for cargo handling.

Visitors can still register online to attend the exhibitions: Airport Show, Airport Security ME and ATC Forum for fast track entry here.
