QAIA: Record-breaking Passenger Traffic in August

Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) welcomed 830,259 travellers through its doors in August, marking the highest monthly passenger traffic in 33 years of operations.

Despite this, monthly aircraft movements fell two percent compared to August 2015, while cargo volume rose 1.1 percent.

Between January – August, over five million tourists travelled through QAIA, a year-on-year growth of 5.1 percent.

Commenting on the success, Kjeld Binger, CEO, Airport International Group, noted, "These figures not only reaffirm the airport's position as Jordan's prime gateway to the world, but they also drive us to work toward setting new milestones and surpassing benchmarks, particularly following the inauguration of the second phase of QAIA's new terminal project earlier this month."
