The airport received 62,661 aircraft movements, 50.5 percent more and 14.9 percent less than the figures recorded during the same periods in 2021 and 2019, respectively. As for year-to-date cargo figures, QAIA handled 56,355 tonnes, marking a 6.3 percent rise and a 40.2 percent decline compared with 2021 and 2019, respectively.


During November, 619,803 passengers traveled through QAIA, up 32 percent and down 1.3 percent compared with 2021 and 2019 figures. Meanwhile, the airport witnessed 5,272 aircraft movements, up 6.6 percent growth and down 9.2 percent drop compared to November 2021 and 2019. QAIA also handled 5,072 tonnes of cargo, recording a 1.8 percent increase and 41.5 percent decrease compared to 2021 and 2019.


“Although passenger figures for November 2022 remained slightly below those reported during the same month in 2019, the gap is being reduced by new passenger profiles, mainly tourists arriving thanks to the efforts of the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), which recently launched the ‘Kingdom of Time' campaign across Europe, promoting Jordan as a tourist destination,” AIG CEO Nicolas Claude said.


AIG is a Jordanian company comprising local and international investors. The government awarded AIG a 25-year build-operate-transfer concession agreement to operate QAIA in 2007.
