Hi everyone..


I want to ask if Riyadh Airport (RUH) is the biggest airport in the world?

I know it is not the busiest but I heard it has the biggest area... Is it true?

I remember that I read the same somewhere but it is already several years ago, it can be that it changed in the meantime and another (newer) airport is now the biggest.

Yes, I have seen it in the Guiness Book of World Records as covering 89 square miles. Doesn't this property also include military (Air Force Base) infrastructure as well?

I highly doubt it. How can a very expensive artificial island compete with cheap barren desert land?

I believe they have the biggest passenger terminal in the world.

I read it somewhere that KUL has the biggest airport after the 2nd satelite building is build. Now it's just an empty piece of field rite next to the satelite terminal. But still the biggest in terms of square miles I think. How about the new BKK airport?

RUH doesn't look huge in the satellite image, though:

But then again, it's hard to compare to anything.
Note that there is another aiport very close to it in the south side.



AY and ANA rock!
