Main Terminal / Concourses at Jeddah King Abdulaziz JED Airport

The present passenger terminal complex at King Abdulaziz International Airport consists of  three passenger terminals
    the North Terminal, used for international flights,

All terminals offer a host of amenities & services, but do not permit smoking. The new Customer Service Center can be reached at 920011233.
NOTE:  The current Airport's check-in & waiting areas have seen significant overcrowding.  As a consequence, friends & family members of a passenger no longer can enter the departure lounge.  More baggage carts have been added and mor personnel.  Until the official opening of the 'new airport facility' departing passengers are asked to arrive 4 hours prior to scheduled departure.
