In the first 10 months of 2016, Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) served more than 6.38 million passengers, a year-on-year increase of 4.4 percent.

Furthermore, during the aforementioned period, aircraft movements grew 2.9 percent, totalling 62,553 while cargo volume surged 2.2 percent to 84,124 tons.

Despite these optimistic figures, there was an eight percent decline in passenger numbers during October 2016, with just 532,542 travellers passing through the hub.

ACM also dropped to 5,630 movements, down 8.1 percent compared to the same period in 2015.

However, as Kjeld Binger, CEO, Airport International Group, explained, this lull is typical during this time of year, and the airfield was set to welcome a surge at the end of 2016.
