The reopening of Queen Alia International Airport to international commercial flights has been postponed, official media outlets announced on Tuesday.

Jordan's airports were scheduled to reopen to foreign tourism on Wednesday, after months of total closure and travel bans due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision has been made as a result of a recommendation by Jordan’s National Epidemiological Committee.

An earlier announcement had said international flights between Jordan and green status countries would resume from August 5.

A new reopening date is yet to be announced.
