Riyadh Airports

Riyadh Airport (RUH)


The airport is situated 22 miles (35km) from Riyadh city centre.


Local time is GMT +3.


Transfer Terminals: 

The terminals are linked by moving walkways.

Transfer City: 

Prepaid airport taxis are available for transport to the city.

Car Rental: 

Car rental counters are located in the lobby and include Avis, Budget and Hertz (women are not allowed to drive on public roads and may not be a passenger with a man who is not immediate family, unless in a taxi).

Airport Taxis: 

Taxis are available at the airport. Fares into downtown Riyadh will never be less than SAR 60. However, scammers and touts will try to charge tourists SAR 200, which is grossly overpriced.

Airport Facilities: 

Facilities include restaurants and cafeterias (no bars as alcohol is illegal), banks in Terminal 2 and ATMs in Terminals 2 and 3, first aid clinics, a post office, various shopping opportunities, and visitor information. A mosque is located in the centre of the passenger terminal. Facilities for the disabled are good.

Car Parking: 

Two multi-level garages are located directly in front of the passenger terminals, on either side of the mosque, which are connected to the terminals by walkways.

Airport Hotels: 

Parking at the airport is state-of-the-art. The parking garages are connected to the airport's mosque and the terminal itself.
