The King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba received the second international flight arriving from Cairo with 69 passengers on board, said the CEO of the Aqaba Airports Company, Nasser Majali, on Friday.

All travelers on board of the flight have tested negative for coronavirus.

The airport has been operating since June and based on protocols set by the Ministry of Health and the Civil Aviation Authority.

Airport staff members are implementing all instructions issued by the Jordanian government to meet the requirements of reopening airports and receiving regular international flights.

The airport’s management also abides by the Jordanian Civil Aviation Authority’s guidelines to ensure the health and safety or travelers.

Passengers on board of different flights are separated and contact with airport employees is minimal.

The first international flight landed in Aqaba on Thursday and transported 39 passengers, Majali said.

PCR tests were conducted for all travelers, he added.

Cargo flights have not stopped operating since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis.
