Traffic continues to climb at Queen Alia International Airport
Queen Alia International Airport welcomed 1.83 million passengers during the first four months of 2022, 204.8% more than during the corresponding period a year ago.
The Jordanian gateway also enjoyed an 126.6% increase in aircraft movements and 31.4% rise in cargo volumes compared to 2021.
Queen Alia operator, Airport International Group (AIG), however, notes that the traffic figures are still well down pre-COVID levels, when 32.7% more passengers, 22.5% more flights and 40% more cargo passed through the airport in the first four months of 2019.
“We are pleased with the improved numbers recorded during April, which coincided with Ramadan and the nearing of Eid al Fitr – a time when people return home to celebrate with family – paired with the eased travel restrictions both locally and internationally, compared to previous months,” says AIG CEO, Nicolas Claude.
“Building on these results, we look forward to witnessing the continued resumption of the traffic within the upcoming months, driven by our steadily-expanding airline and destination networks and the approach of the summer break, Eid al Adha holiday and Hajj season.”
