Queen Alia International Airport has welcomed 2,536,484 passengers until May 2022. That is a 200.5% increase and 23.4% drop compared to 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively

Airport International Group (AIG) has announced today that Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) has welcomed 2,536,484 passengers (PAX) up to May 2022 – marking a 200.5% surge and 23.4% drop against 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively. Moreover, QAIA recorded 25,336 aircraft movements (ACM), representing a 125.0% increase and 17.0% decrease compared with 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively. QAIA also handled 23,475 tons of cargo – 26.4% higher and 42.5% lower than figures registered in 2021 and 2019, respectively.

During the month of May, QAIA received 701,383 PAX – showing substantial 189.7% and 20.2% growth against 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively, spurred by the traffic-boosting Eid al Fitr break, which was celebrated this year at the start of May as opposed to June in 2019. On a similar note, QAIA witnessed 6,374 ACM, up 120.4% and 5.2% compared to 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively. QAIA also handled 4,621 tons of cargo, indicating a 9.5% rise and 50.0% fall against 2021 and 2019 figures, respectively.

“The May PAX figures represent positive year-on-year growth compared to 2021 – largely driven by the extended Eid al Fitr holiday and eased travel restrictions in Jordan and around the world. We look forward to experiencing steady progress within the upcoming months as we enter the summer break, Eid al Adha holiday and Hajj season,” commented Airport International Group CEO, Nicolas Claude.
