'in the initial stages the airport will witness airline operators from the military the rcjy and official company delegation. we will continue to coordinate with the authorities to enable the airport to operate flights for the public" he explained.

al-otaibi agreed that jubail needs the airport to reopen to serve the city in light of the expansion and development work which is taking place in the city and nearby provinces.

the airport will serve more than 500000 visitors investors and workers coming into the city from both within and outside the kingdom.

the operation of a public airport in jubail in the upcoming stage will offer services for al-khafji ras al-khair as well as neighboring towns and villages. in addition the airport will support the growth of the air transport market in the kingdom due to the high demand on the industrial city which is home to a number of diverse industries.

jubail airport is a military airfield and has been constructed and built by the royal commission for jubail and yanbu as part of jubail industrial city.

the royal commission and saudi aramco aircraft as well as some civilian flights from saudi arabian airlines operated the airport in the early eighties. however four years later a decision was made for the airport to be handed over to the armed forces. since then the airport is used as a base for naval aviation and the eastern fleet of the royal navy.
