Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) received around 4.5 million passengers in 2021, which is an increase of 122.3 percent compared to 2020.

In a press statement on Thursday, Airport International Group (AIG) said QAIA's aircraft movement was up by 92.4 percent compared to 2020.

The AIG CEO, Nicolas Claude, said the total "actual" aircraft movements recorded in 2021 were "within expectations, but their numbers have not yet approached the desired levels."

Claude expressed his hope to restore passenger traffic recorded before the outbreak of the pandemic.
