JEDDAH: A multinational media delegation visited King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah on Tuesday to learn more about the services the state is providing for its guests, both pilgrims and travelers.
The delegation kicked off their visit with a tour around the new hall (hall 1), where they were received by Assistant Director-General of the airport Abed Al-Mohsen Al-Sheikh and a number of officials.
The delegation checked the modern services, equipment and techniques available at the new airport and were amazed by the technologies provided for travelers as well as the enormity of the airport, which reflects the Kingdom’s efforts in supporting the civil aviation industry.
The delegation continued their visit with a tour in the processing areas of arrival and departure and listened to an explanation about the airport’s great capacities and modern technologies adopted for the service of travelers.
The delegation also visited the Hajj halls at the airport and checked the new services provided for pilgrims in all the halls that receive tens of thousands of pilgrims every day heading to the holy sites to perform Hajj.
The tour also covered Hall 11, allocated to the Interior Ministry’s initiative “Makkah Road,” where the delegation listened to an explanation by the Commander of the Hajj Passports Force Col. Suleiman bin Mohammed Al-Yusuf about the services hall 11 offers pilgrims, to facilitate and optimize their Hajj experience. The delegation then moved to the Hajj and Umrah Ministry’s platform allocated to welcome pilgrims this year.
At the end of the tour, the delegation praised the airport’s development and speed in completing traveling procedures in a record time, noting King Salman and the crown prince’s great efforts to serve pilgrims and provide the best services and care.
For his part, Turki Al-Thieb, director-general of the public relations and information at the airport, said the delegation included a big number of international media representatives from Arab and European countries as well as West Asia and Africa.
The delegation’s visit aimed to check the services and modern technologies as well as the services provided for pilgrims from their arrival until their departure after performing Hajj, within a comprehensive system of services provided by more than 27 governmental and non-governmental bodies and supervised by the Civil Aviation Authority, represented by the airport’s administration.
Al-Thieb said the delegationэs members looked over the services provided at the Hajj halls for pilgrims and the speed of completing Hajj procedures in less than 20 minutes. These services are carried out under the directive of King Salman and his crown prince to serve pilgrims from the moment they arrive to perform Hajj until the moment they head back to their countries safe and sound.
Local, Arab and foreign media channels and international news agencies are showing a big interest in covering the services provided by the Kingdom for its pilgrims at King Abdul Aziz International Airport, where more than 344 permits have been issued so far, allowing local and international media in the Hajj halls.
