According to a Wednesday press statement by the Airport International Group, the QAIA recorded 13,684 aircraft movements, indicating a 123.4 percent increase and 22.9 percent decrease compared with 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively.

The QAIA also handled 13,731 tons of cargo — 33 percent higher and 39.3 percent lower than figures registered in 2021 and 2019, respectively.

During the month of March, the QAIA received 561,425 passengers, signifying a substantial 251.3 percent growth and 17.0 percent drop against 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively.

“During the first quarter of 2022, specifically following the international easing of travel restrictions, QAIA experienced a positive turn in year-to-date and year-on-year traffic that helped bridge the gap compared with 2019 pre-COVID figures. Given the interconnected nature of the industry we operate in, such efforts are not only welcome but necessary for expediting the recovery of air transport in Jordan and across the globe,” said Airport International Group CEO Nicolas Claude.
