The International North Terminal of KAIA Airport completed its renovation & expansion project, including adding three new crescent-shaped passenger halls south of it.  The North hall has 14 gates and is intended for all regular foreign airlines, as well as for the airlines operating exclusively during the Hajj and Umra seasons.
The Domestic South Terminal of KAIA Airport also completed its  expansion & renovation project. It serves exclusively Saudi Airlines and is recognized by its pronounced inclined roof above the main departure hall, considered an architectural wonder, and designed to accommodate 2,500 passengers per hour, with 40 airline gates and offering VIP travelers separate housing to rest and freshen up, as well as their private parking lots.

The mosque has a mihrab made from forged 500-year old tiles and can accommodate up to 1,250 worshipers.
