Internal passenger traffic has increased by 19% in 2011 compared to 2010, and the movement of goods by 12% in the same period, Bany said. "There is a long-term gain in the strategy to develop domestic airport infrastructure. And offering [their development] as public-private partnerships will improve the investment climate," Bany said. The Three New Airports GACA is conducting a feasibility study on the New Abha Regional Airport, which will occupy about 62,000 square meters. It will be implemented in two phases, the first resulting in the capacity to handle 3.5 million passengers annually and the second increasing that capacity to five million passengers yearly, the official said. A new airport in Jizan, 30 kilometers north of the existing airport, will be located between the industrial and residential parts of Jizan. The feasibility study has been completed and a public tender will be issued soon, the official told Zawya. The new Jizan airport will add a capacity of 2.4 million passengers per year. The project includes the construction of a three-storey main terminal over 52,000 square meters, with 10 gates and a VIP lounge. The third new airport, at Al Qasim, will have a 34,000 square meter terminal building with the capacity to handle 1.4 million passengers per year.
