A five-star hotel will be built at King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) in Dammam, airport General Manager Eng. Khalid bin Khalil Al Mizel said.
He said his administration has recently awarded a contract to an international company for the construction of the said hotel.
Al Mizel said "the hotel is to provide service for travelers and airport goers, in addition to airlines operating at the airport."
"The hotel project implementation would take two years from the date of the signing of contract, he said, adding that "the hotel design and aesthetics have been taken into account to keep up with the basic design of the KFIA and will be next to the airport mosque." He further said the 250-room hotel will be linked to the airport terminal by pedestrian bridge to facilitate the access to and from the hotel.
