Being an important Hajj destination, the airport has been designed to accommodate more than 80 million passengers annually. The General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) commissioned OMK to develop a moulded polyurethane version of their Trax High Back model, which carries a 25 year guarantee. This is a testimonial to the longevity of TRAX, which is currently in use in over 200 airports worldwide.
