Airport International Group announced that Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) welcomed 597,134 passengers (PAX) in March, reflecting a 19.2% decrease compared to 2023 figures. 

During the same month, QAIA recorded 5,476 aircraft movements (ACM) and handled 6,361 tonnes of cargo, marking an 11.4% decline and a 13.5% increase, respectively, from the same period the previous year.

In year-to-date statistics, QAIA experienced a 4.6% drop in PAX, totalling 1,968,993 PAX as opposed to the same period in 2023.

Additionally, QAIA reported 16,639 ACM and handled 19,339 tons of cargo, showcasing a 5.5% decline and 30.3% surge, respectively, against the same period the previous year.

“Our overall results were largely influenced by March coinciding with the holy month of Ramadan, a period known for decreased travel activity, coupled with the ongoing developments in Gaza,” Airport International Group CEO, Nicolas Deviller.

“Nevertheless, we remain dedicated to working closely with our teams and partners to ensure QAIA regains momentum and continues to deliver to passengers an efficient, comfortable and welcoming experience that feels like home.” – TradeArabia News Service
