For those who dont know, Makkah has never had an airport and Jeddah and served it so far, but there were plans for one catering to the holy city to be built just outside it announced in 2000, what happened? has it been shelved or is it under construction?

The Mekkah airport, if constructed, would decrease the congestion of JED especially in Ramadan and during the Hajj season.

I don't know if the Saudi gvt has cancelled this project or not but the fact that Medinah Airport recieves now international flights is a kind of solution for the JED jam !!!

Well I went to KSA in February, and had to travel to JED, then get a coach to Meccah. I think it is only a matter of time though as it makes sence.
