Incredible! Saudi Arabia’s newest addition is an ‘optical illusion’ ultra-luxury airport

Saudi Arabia will soon get a new ultra-luxury airport that will look like an optical illusion, i.e., like a mirage in the desert. At first sight, it will seem like a mirage, but in reality, it is an international airport.

Renderings were recently released, which are being created by a UK-based architectural and design firm, whereas the master plan of the airport has been designed by Egis, a well-known engineering group.

Reportedly, the airport will serve the new Amaala resort on Saudi’s north-west Red Sea coast, and will be able to cater to around 1 million passengers a year, and the airport will be up and running by 2023. It is reported that those approaching the airport, will be able to view ‘beautiful land art from the air’, and the moment they enter the terminal, they will be greeted with a sleek mirrored edifice rising from the desert.

Referring to this, the Amaala resort said that the design of the said luxury airport has been inspired by the surrounding environment, thereby resulting in a mesmerizing mirage effect. It further added that the terminal will be complemented with unique artwork and contemporary interiors to offer tailored experiences to the travellers. Apart from this, the airport will also reflect the ultra-luxury spirit of the Amaala resort, which will provide exclusive private-club experience to the travellers.

As regarding the Amaala resort, it is located in 4155 sq km of the Prince Mohammad bin Salman Natural Reserve. Touted as a ‘year-round destination’, when it will be all ready to welcome guests, it will be equipped with 2500 hotel rooms, apartments, estate homes, more than 800 residential villas, along with other establishments. The resort is expected to be ready in all phases by 2028.

An official from the Amaala resort stated the visitors will be greeted by personalised experiences from the moment they deboard their plane. In fact, right from design to conceptualization, this will be no ordinary airport, he added.
