Carving a niche in the Levant

Issue 6 2012  •  7 December 2012  •  Kjeld Binger, Chief Executive Officer, Airport International Group, Queen Alia International Airport

Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) is preparing to launch its landmark new terminal in early 2013, with hopes that this contemporary re-imagining of the country’s primary portal will bring new prosperity, transforming the airport into a regional niche hub.With its strategic geographical location, Jordan’s QAIA is well positioned to become an important passenger, cargo and transit hub in the Middle East, connecting East and West via a country with political stability in spite of regional turmoil. Indeed, QAIA has experienced rapid increases in passenger traffic, aircraft movement and cargo traffic over the past several years. From 2007 to 2008, passenger volume rose a remarkable 16 per cent. Since that time, annual passenger volume has risen from 4.5 million in 2008 to 5.5 million in 2011, an increase of 22 per cent in three years. With its current infra - structure only able to handle a maximum capacity of 3.5 million annual passengers, QAIA has been undergoing the construction of a landmark new terminal – a re-invented and fully functional airport in and of itself – that is nearing completion of its first and most important phase.The airport renovation and expansion project at QAIA was awarded to Airport International Group (AIG), a Jordanian consortium of regional and international investors and experts in infrastructure development, construction and airport management. The project began in 2007 with the concurrent construction of the new terminal and renovations of the existing terminals.
