The airport currently has two passenger terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Construction of the new terminal complex cost $335 million, which was mainly financed by the Arab Fund for Economic Development. Egypt's aviation minister, Houssam Kamal, said that the airport would be able to host up to 13 million visitors annually.[3][4] The project was inaugurated by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on December 17, 2014.[5] The new terminal has a total area of 92,000 square meters on 3 levels. The departure hall has 72 check-in counters and 20 departure gates.[citation needed]
