Queen Alia Intl Airport sees 27.5% cargo surge in April

Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) reported a remarkable 27.5% increase in cargo handling in April 2024, processing 6,504 tonnes of cargo compared to April 2023. Year-to-date, the airport experienced a 29.6% surge in cargo, totaling 25,843 tonnes. Despite a decline in passenger numbers and aircraft movements, the airport’s cargo operations have shown robust growth. Nicolas Deviller, CEO of Airport International Group, emphasized the significance of this achievement. “We’re delighted with the substantial increase in our cargo handling capabilities, which demonstrates our commitment to enhancing logistics and freight services.” Deviller noted the challenges affecting passenger traffic but underscored the positive outcomes in cargo. “The ongoing situation in Gaza and the West Bank has impacted our passenger figures, yet our focus on improving cargo services has paid off. We’re dedicated to meeting the needs of our cargo clients and ensuring efficient, reliable operations.”

Looking forward, QAIA plans to continue its growth in the cargo sector. “We aim to further develop our infrastructure and partnerships to meet increasing cargo demands and establish QAIA as a key hub for international freight,” Deviller added.
