Airport International Group (AIG), the international consortium responsible for the development and operation of Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) [in Amman, Jordan], said the new terminal will officially start its operation on March 21.
A consortium led by Abu Dhabi-owned Invest AD and Kuwait's Noor Financial Investment Company, AIG said QAIA is one of the most important Public Private Partnership (PPP) in the history of Jordan.
The AIG had been awarded a 25-year build-operate-transfer (BoT) concession by the Jordanian government in 2007. With the opening of the new terminal, the airport will be able to handle nearly 9 million passengers a year.
