Saudi Arabian Airlines has established and renewed counters for passengers with special needs at King Khaled International airport in Riyadh, whereby the design of the counters meet international standards of the height of the counters, in addition, the airline will be establishing special lounges for those passengers aiming at facilitating their travel procedures. Establishment of these counters expected to be finalized within seven weeks.
The airline is also planning to establish such counter in the different airports of the Kingdom during the coming period after specifying the budget for that.

The Hajj terminal and the new midfield terminal are separate projects.
The Hajj BOT is at a more advanced stage. Prequalification is done, and bids have been placed.
RFPs haven't been tendered for the construction of the new terminal yet as far as I know. Renovations to the current terminals should've started now to bridge until the new terminal is ready, and the current terminals closed.
