Aqaba airport inaugurates new arrivals terminal


Aqaba, July 4 - The Red Sea city of Aqaba in
Jordan has inaugurated a new arrival wing in the King Hussein
International Airport, serving the burgeoning resort city and
surrounding tourism sites.
Prince Hussein toured the 5.4-million-euro investment at
Wednesday's ceremony and surveyed firsthand the terminal's
1,500-square-metre expansion.
Head Commissioner of the development project ASEZA (Aqaba
Special Economic Zone) Kamel O. Mahadin noted that the terminal
facilitates arrival procedures for passengers who will now spend
no more than 25 minutes to complete customs and visa
requirements before leaving the airport.
Airport Director Munir Asaad said the expansion project
was part of a comprehensive plan for the airport, which began in
2008, to meet the operating requirements by 2028 at a total cost
of 65.2 million euros.
Established in 1972, the facility was the first Jordanian
airport to obtain a licence from the Civil Aviation Regulatory
Commission, offering its services to more than 35 airlines
travelling to 13 destinations worldwide.
Returns on investment are expected to reach 326 million
euros over the next decade.
Last year, around 171,000 travellers came to Aqaba, some
330 kilometers south of Amman, and some 2,820 planes landed at
the airport.
The airport is owned by the Aqaba Development Corporation
and has been operated by the Aqaba Airports Company since 2007.
Investments to date are estimated at 108.8 million euros.
