The specialized committee responsible for evaluating the offers will include members from the government tenders department, and its recommendations will be presented officially after the completion of the technical studies.

This month, the airport began receiving offers to implement the plan to cover the 1km long and 17m deep valley within the required specifications.

The estimated work period for the project is 10 months from the date of referral of the tender.

Potential second option for low-cost flightsSecretary-General of the Ministry of Transport, Wesam Tahtamouni, had previously indicated that Amman Civil Airport would be a second option for receiving low-cost flights.

 During the financial committee meetings to discuss the general budget for 2023, the Minister of Transport, Maher Abu Al-Samen, stated that the operation of Amman Civil Airport would begin this year.

However, CEO of Jordanian Airports Company, Ahmad Azzam, earlier stated that the commercial operation of Amman Civil Airport in the Marka area would begin in 2024, after obtaining the operating permit from the Civil Aviation Authority.

The airport currently operates to receive non-commercial aircraft, and civil operations at the airport are limited to private flights, diplomatic flights, and flights for maintenance purposes.

In addition to its operations, Amman Civil Airport/Marka also houses the headquarters of several academies operating within the airport campus, making it a center for education and training in the aviation field.
