Surrounded by dramatic sand dunes and the vast open spaces of the Arabian Desert, Dammam Airport (known as King Fahd International Airport) is truly vast with six levels housing a huge selection of facilities, check-in desks, lounges and porter services.
Transportation and parking
The airport has a multi-storey car park attached to it. On the roof of this car park, you can find a mosque, which can be accessed from the passenger terminal through two enclosed, air-conditioned bridges and an additional open bridge.
The airport is around 50 kilometres from Dammam city centre, but is well served by frequent bus links and taxis. Carrier SAPTCO runs shuttle buses between the airport and the bus station every hour. The trip takes around 45 minutes. Taxis are available and are located in the rank outside the main entrance. A limousine service is also available.
Arriving at King Fahd International Airport
There is only one terminal at the airport, but it is vast. Departure check-in is located on Level 6, while boarding gates are on Level 4.
Facilities and amenities
King Fahd International Airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to open duty-free shops within its airport. There is a separate area dedicated to shops selling goods that passengers might find useful during their travels, and in the arrivals area you will also find plenty of cafés, restaurants and banks.
ATMs and currency exchange points are available in the departure and arrival areas. For a light meal with a view, head to the fourth floor (above check-in), where you'll find an observation deck and a café serving a buffet selection of food.

Milan’s museums house collections of international importance. The best are located in the Pinacoteca di Brera, which can be compared with the greats such as the Louvre in Paris and Madrid's El Prado. The museum is home to Italy’s finest classical art collection, including "The Kiss" by Francesco Hayez. Other must-see museums and galleries include the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, and the Societa' per le Belle Arti ed Esposizione Permanente for more contemporary art and sculpture.
The Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology is a fascinating and interactive museum that looks a little more closely at some of the great man’s scientific inventions and ideas. For opera lovers, the obvious destination has to be La Scala Theatre, one of the world’s most important venues for classical opera. A strangely beautiful attraction is the Art Nouveau cemetery of Cimitero Monumentale, which is filled with lavish sculptures and is effectively the largest open-air Art Nouveau museum in the world.
The Cinque Vie historical district is Milan’s ancient heart, and is where the Roman city grew up. It’s also home to some of the city’s most exclusive boutique shopping, and plenty of espresso bars to keep you refreshed and fuelled up for a busy day’s sightseeing.
