QAIA Traffic Grows

A notable year-on-year increase of 9.7 percent was recorded in passenger numbers at Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) in July.

According to statistics released by Airport International Group (AIG), the company responsible for QAIA’s operation, during the month under review, the hub welcomed 821,625 travellers, pushing year-to-date traffic to 4,246,086 passengers, a 6.2 percent boost over the corresponding timeframe in 2015.

Consequently, aircraft movements and cargo traffic volumes both registered increases of 5.6 percent and five percent, respectively, between January and July.

As Kjeld Binger, CEO, AIG, noted, in the coming months, a number of new airlines are set to begin flying to and from QAIA, which will also soon inaugurate the second phase of the new terminal project.
