The aerial pics are very interesting.
Do you know what they plan to do with the current South-North terminals (I assume the beautiful Hajj terminal will be kept for Hajj anyway... I hope!)? I have watched the video but I can't understand Arabic. Isn't the new terminal in the same area where the private jet terminals were located?

Yes, the old "Arabasco" terminal and ramp were demolished to make room for the new terminal complex. A new GA ramp and terminal were constructed just south of the western half of the Hajj terminal (which will remain in use).
All scheduled operations will be transfered to the new terminal complex. The south terminal will eventually be demolished to make way for the cargo village (phase 1 of the cargo village won't require it though). The north terminal may be used as a GA/charter terminal in the future.
