GACA is preparing a tender and will ask consortia of international and local companies to bid to develop the airport, and aims to award a contract in the first half of 2015, said spokesman, Khaled al-Khaibani. The airport will serve visitors for the annual haj, as well as Umrah, a lesser pilgrimage to Makkah, which can be performed at any time of year.
