The second phase of the New Terminal Project at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) in Jordan has been completed by Airport International Group (AIG), which is a consortium led by Abu Dhabi-based financial services company Invest AD.

This phase has seen the addition of more than 43,000m² to the airport’s total area, which will increase its passenger capacity from the current seven million to up to 12 million passengers annually.

In the future, it will be able to increase capacity to 16 million passengers per year, reported

"This much-anticipated completion of QAIA’s second expansion phase is an extraordinary milestone."

Invest AD CEO Faras Al Ramahi was quoted by the website as saying: “This much-anticipated completion of QAIA’s second expansion phase is an extraordinary milestone, and a result of an ambitious vision and a successful partnership between the group and the Jordanian Government, which has been chosen as one of the top 40 private-public partnerships in the world.

"This has led the airport to be chosen as the best airport in the region. We will continue to ensure that the quality provided by the consortium is maintained.”

The expansion, which required an investment of $214m, has increased the number of gates in operation at the airport from 13 to 25.
