In continuation of its positive traffic growth trend, Airport International Group (AIG) – the Jordanian company responsible for the rehabilitation, expansion and operation of Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) – announced an increase in passenger numbers (PAX) and aircraft movements (ACM) at QAIA during July 2014.
For the seventh consecutive month, PAX and ACM figures are on a steady rise, surging by 5.6% and 8.4% respectively, to reach 578,026 PAX and 6,335 ACM compared to July 2013. Since the beginning of 2014 and up until July, year-to-date (YTD) PAX and ACM statistics rose by 11.8% and 8.6% respectively as opposed to the same period last year, to come in at 4,154,288 PAX and 42,384 ACM.
“July’s figures represent a positive year-on-year increase in PAX and ACM statistics, and were especially enhanced by the Eid Al-Fitr vacation, which occurred at the end of the month. This resulted in a direct increase in flights to and from holiday destinations including the GCC, Egypt, Erbil, London and Vienna,” stated AIG CEO Kjeld Binger.
