Jordan cargo volumes surge in May despite drop in numbers

In May, Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) saw a growth in cargo operations, handling 6,827 tonnes, up by 34.4 per cent compared to the same period last year, as per the Airport International Group (AIG). Despite the cargo growth, aircraft movements at the airport dropped to 5,896, a fall of 6.4 per cent. Passenger numbers also fell, with QAIA receiving 653,936 passengers in May, marking a 9.8 per cent decline from 2023 figures. Year-to-date statistics reveal that QAIA has managed 32,670 tonnes of cargo, reflecting a significant 30.6 per cent increase from last year. However, aircraft movements have decreased by 5.9 per cent to 28,318, and the total number of passengers has dropped by 6 per cent to 3,292,087. AIG CEO Nicolas Claude attributed the fluctuations to the disruptions caused by the ongoing tensions in the Middle East, which impacted airline operations and tourism flow.
