During a visit to Ajloun’s cable car station, King Abdullah, accompanied by HRH Crown Prince Hussein, checked on visitors’ entry procedures, calling for providing quality services to boost tourism in the governorate.

His Majesty said the cable car project should be a model for tourism development, by connecting it to other tourism attractions in Ajloun.

The King listened to a briefing on the project, which is aimed at attracting further investments in tourism, including hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, ecological camps, hiking trails, and a convention center.

The cable car project has provided 100 permanent jobs so far, in addition to nearly 800 temporary job opportunities during construction.

Since its inauguration in mid-June, the project, which cost JD12.5 million and includes 40 eight-passenger cabins, has received 150,000 visitors, with a route extending over 2.5km.
