Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport experienced “robust growth” in passenger numbers during the first six months of 2014, new figures from Airport International Group (AIG) show.

During the first six months of 2014, passenger traffic grew by 12.94% to 3.57mn travellers.

Aircraft activity was also on the up, rising by 8.59% compared with the same period in 2013.

The month of June brought the first half of 2014 to a positive conclusion by welcoming 687,804 passengers and 6,573 aircrafts – a 10.47% and 9.19% increase respectively.

“We are very pleased to have recorded such strong traffic growth during H1, and while the majority of the airport's routes have shown increased activity during this period, top contributors comprised the GCC, Sharm El Sheikh, Iraq, Tripoli and London,” said Kjeld Binger, AIG CEO.

“We look forward to what the remaining six months of the year will bring, in line with our commitment towards helping QAIA reach its full potential as Jordan's prime gateway to the world.”
