Queen Alia International Airport Welcomes over 9.2 Million Passengers in 2023

Airport International Group announced that Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) - for the first time in its history - welcomed 9,201,269 passengers (PAX) in 2023, registering a 17.4 percent increase against 2022 figures.

Throughout the same period, QAIA handled 77,696 aircraft movements (ACM) and 67,366 tons of cargo, 13.7 percent and 9.9 percent higher, respectively, than 2022.

Meanwhile, during the month of December, QAIA received 643,048 PAX and 5,582 ACM, down 2.6% and 1.5%, respectively, compared to 2022, and 6,434 tons of cargo, up 30.4% compared to 2022.

 The positive annual figures are largely driven by Airport International Group’s close collaboration with its strategic partners - the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Jordan Tourism Board - to expand its airline and destination networks, promote local tourist sites and enhance the Kingdom’s connectivity to major cities worldwide.

 In 2023, local, regional and international airlines introduced 11 new and renewed direct routes via QAIA, raising the total number of scheduled destinations to 81 (6.6 percent higher than in 2022). Meanwhile, partnerships with new airlines were also established, with a total of 44 passenger and cargo airlines operating via QAIA in 2023.
