RJ to transfer all its flights to new terminal
Amman, March 20, 2013
Royal Jordanian will transfer all its departing and arriving flights to the new terminal at Queen Alia International Airport, starting from March 21.
King Abdullah II opened the terminal on March 14.
The new terminal is one of the most modern and advanced gateways in the region, in terms of construction and design, which blend Islamic architecture with the latest technology.
RJ operates more than 100 flights daily, making up 60 per cent of the traffic at the airport, said a statement.
The new terminal was built on over 103,000 sq m, double the area of the old terminal. The terminal increases Queen Alia International Airport's capacity from 3.5 million to 9 million passengers per year, with plans to increase the capacity even further to 12 million passengers per year in the final stage. - TradeArabia News Service
