    Departure procedures are pretty much straight forward at the Dammam airport. Baggage Check, Passenger Check-in, Security Check and Immigration (I may have switched the last 2, as my last trip out was via bus to Bahrain). There's a big waiting lounge after Immigration, with some snack kiosks and a small duty free shopping area. The male/female segregation still applies, and better keep your abaya on. I just don't remember anymore if we paid any airport tax.

    Being also a mother travelling with a kid, I've encountered at lot of helpful people in my previous trips to/from the Middle East. Though entering the King Fahd airport building in particular, porters helping with your baggage are expecting some tip/gratuity.
