An Abu-Dhabi led consortium announced it has completed refurbishment and expansion works at an airport in Jordan. 

Airport International Group (AIG), led by Abu Dhabi-based financial services company Invest AD, has reportedly completed second phase works of the New Terminal Project, which includes the refurbishment and expansion of Amman's Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA). 

According to Arabian Business, the $214m second phase has added more than 43,000 sqm to QAIA's total area and almost doubled the airport's number of gates in operation from 13 to 25. 

Up to 10 travelators, 24 escalators, and 18 lifts have been installed as part of the project. 

Two fixed link bridges have been developed to accommodate the Airbus A380, the world's largest airplane. 

These expansion works also increase the airport's annual capacity from seven million to 12 million passengers. 

Expanded facilities include two business lounges, two duty-free areas, eight prayer rooms, larger monitors, additional charging stations, and an upgraded wi-fi system, the report added.
