Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport Achieves Best Regional Airport in Middle East

Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport (Madinah Airport) has been named the Best Regional Airport in the Middle East for 2024 at the Skytrax World Airport Awards.

The awards ceremony, held in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday, is highly esteemed in the airport industry as it is based on the largest annual customer satisfaction survey, where customers from around the world cast their votes. More than 550 airports participated in the survey.

This recognition underscores Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport’s steadfast commitment to delivering top-notch services and an exceptional travel experience to passengers. It solidifies the airport’s position as one of the world’s premier airports, having climbed two positions to secure the 50th rank on the list of the world’s top 100 airports.

The CEO of Tibah Airports Operation Company, Sofiene Abdessalem, expressed his utmost appreciation and pride for this remarkable achievement. He credited the relentless efforts of Tibah Airports employees and airport partners under the supervision of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) for this success.

Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz Airport has previously earned this prestigious recognition from Skytrax in both 2020 and 2021. In addition to these accolades, the airport has received several other international and local awards and acknowledgments, further solidifying its position among the world’s leading international airports.

The airport’s commitment to growth and excellence is exemplified by its ongoing expansion projects and the introduction of new travel connections, offering passengers a wide range of travel options.

In March, Governor of Madinah Region Prince Salman bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz inaugurated the second phase of the airport’s expansion project. This phase includes the development of the terminal and the establishment of a new terminal for domestic flights. The project aims to increase the airport’s capacity to accommodate up to 17 million passengers annually by the end of 2027, more than doubling its previous capacity of 8 million passengers.
