Jordan's Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) welcomed a total of 1,053,225 passengers during the month of August, up 5.1 per cent compared to the same month last year.
According to the official statistics issued by Airport International Group, QAIA witnessed 8,555 aircraft movements (ACM) and handled 8,230 tons of cargo during the month, registering a 3.0 per cent increase and a 1.5 per cent decrease, respectively.
Since the beginning of the year until the end of August, year-to-date passenger figures came in at 6,161,786, rising by 6.2 per cent - in comparison with the same period in 2018. In tandem, year-to-date ACM amounted to 54,495 - up by 4.1 per cent, whereas year-to-date cargo totalled at 66,851 - down by 3.1 per cent.
“This August, we have attained yet another proud accomplishment by welcoming the largest number of passengers Queen Alia International Airport has ever seen in one month. This positive result is mainly led by the conclusion of the summer holidays, as well as Hajj and Eid al-Adha, during which people visit their families and loved ones or take the opportunity to vacation abroad,” said Airport International Group CEO, Kjeld Binger. - TradeArabia News Service
