JANUARY 2016: SAR87 FOR ONE WAY AIRPORT TERMINAL FEE IN SAUDI ARABIA




Inbound and outbound international passengers would have to pay an SR87 fee for using airport facilities starting Jan. 1, 2016, ArabNews reported. The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has announced that the fees would be recovered from airlines. The airlines, presumably will add up this cost to passenger’s airline tickets.
 
Originally, KSA airports are collecting SR50 for terminal fee upon purchase of tickets.

Right now, for each ticket purchased, airline company will collect additional  SR87 for terminal fee, or SR174 for round trip ticket (arrival and departure in the Kingdom).
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Civil Aviation (Gaca) announced that they will begin to privatize the operations of its airports in the first quarter of 2016, starting with Riyadh’s King Khaled International airport (KKIA). They are planning to privatize total of 27 airports in the Kingdom, in order to lessen the expenses and deficit due to lower oil revenues because of the low oil oil price.
