Succcess Story


CAI started an Operations and Management Agreement with King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) in Dammam, Saudi Arabia in 2008 to transform, commercialise and corporatise the airport, and reverse its declining market share.

CAI worked closely with the local management team to implement a hub development programme that included airline engagement, route development, traffic management and destination marketing.

Within two years, KFIA was recognised with a Routes Airport Marketing Award (Middle East) at the 8th Routes Asia Conference in 2010.

In 2016, passenger traffic at KFIA had grown 110% from 2008. KFIA surpassed its competitor airport for the fourth consecutive year to become the largest airport by traffic volume in its catchment.

The airport was also named the Most Improved Airport in the Middle East, and third Best Airport by Region (Middle East), at the Airports Council International 2015 Airport Service Quality Awards.
