I Don't Know

I didn’t get inside the airport but I saw it from the outside. I don’t think I would agree that AlAhsa domestic Airport is busy. Because the moment I saw the airport outside, it looked like it was empty. In fact, I thought it was inactive. Even though I saw two parked Saudi Arabian planes. When I saw the airport it was around 9/10pm so it was dark already. According to what I know, an active airport or can I say a "busy domestic airport" should have the runway lightened, shouldn’t? But it is not what I saw. I am not saying this for AlAhsa Domestic Airport to look bad. I am only saying what I saw. And in fact, I lived in AlAhsa as well. So the bottom line here is I don’t believe with what Dr Abdullah Al-Azraqi said about the airport, but would agree that the airport is used by frequent Aramco flights, because yes, it is near Aramco (an Arab American oil company).

This small airport, compared to other national airports of the Kingdom, is yet busy not only with Saudia Airlines domestic flights but also with frequent Saudi Aramco flights. This is because the airport is in the heart of the richest oil field in the world (Ghawwar field). Most of Saudia flights are to Riyadh and some to Jeddah. This airport serves 1.3 million and people here feel that there is need for more flights to and from HOF. Being in the heart of Dahna desert, which is located between to different pressure zones, the wind is almost 24 hrs! and passengers, not pilots of course, experience difficulties during landing in particular. This phenomenon is exaggerated since all flights are operated on MD90-30 and Embraer-170 airplanes. Larger airplanes usually do not bother !!
