The experience of AlUla will begin on arrival. Most visitors will arrive through Prince Abdul Majeed bin Abdulaziz Airport. The airport will be cutting edge, reflecting a modern interpretation of AlUla’s traditional architecture.
Conventional means of transportations to and from the airport will be re-envisioned. Unique, creative and exciting experiences to reach one’s accommodation will be explored and building, landscapes and civic spaces will offer authentic clues that one has arrived in AlUla.
