Executive committees were formed under the chairmanship of H.E. Dr. Ali Abdulrahman Al-Khalaf, President of Civil Aviation. H.E. presided over the opening ceremony committee whose membership included PCA senior officials. A number of specialized sub-committees stemmed from the committee: (Preparatory Committee, Technical Committee, Security Committee, Reception Committee, Hosting Committee, Financial Committee, Health Committee and Public Relations Committee).

Preparation efforts covered all the sections of the opening ceremony including the video presentations, and the documentary film, which shall be prepared by a specialized national company in addition to related publications such as brochures, pamphlets, booklets, press information files and photographs showing the airport facilities with the centenary logo on them. All preparations related to the welcoming of the visiting VIPs from in-kingdom and out-of-kingdom were complete and all efforts were integrated to ensure all chances of success for the ceremony.

PCA has the right to be proud of this remarkable achievement and to extend its genuine felicitations to the man behind the country’s development, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Fahd Bin Abdulaziz, and to the Crown Prince and Deputy Premier and Head of the National Guard and HRH Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz, the Second Deputy Premier, Minister of Defense and Aviation and Inspector General who personally followed up all airport execution phases and also to H.H.
