Ihsa airportThe VIP visitors’ pavilion at Ihsa domestic airport in the eastern region of Saudi Arabia collapsed last Tuesday following heavy rainfall. No injuries were reported following the collapse.

The incident raised a lot of criticism among social media users. Despite costing the government millions of Riyals, the infrastructure of airports in the Eastern Province of the kingdom did not meet international quality and standards.

The domestic airport had been under consideration for operating short international flights, reported Sabq news. In fact, the airport recently recorded its first international flight to Sharjah in the UAE on Monday after completing all necessary preparations for international flight operations from the airport.
