Groupe ADP operates Queen Alia International Airport, in Amman
Following the winning of a concession contract in 2007, Groupe ADP has been operating and developing Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, through Airport International Group (AIG) in which it holds a 51% stake alongside builders and investment funds (since 2018).
A 25-year concession-contract covers the operation of existing facilities, and the construction and operation of a new terminal.
The new terminal was built in two phases. The first phase of construction work has resulted in the creation of 113,000 m2 with a capacity of 7 million passengers, which opened in March 2013. An extension was added in September 2016, bringing the total capacity to 12 million passengers per year.
In Amman, teams set up by Groupe ADP supervise 440 people in charge of quality, engineering, maintenance, sales, passenger services and information technology.
This airport, real showcase for the national airline Royal Jordanian, which welcomed 8.9 million passengers in 2019, earned a high reputation in the region. It has won several times the title of "Best Middle East Airport" in the category of airports with 5 to 15 million passengers per year, at the ASQ (Airport Service Quality) Awards of the ACI (Airport Council International), and is recognized for the quality of its aeronautical infrastructure and passenger services.
Amman's Queen Alia Airport is the first airport in the Middle East to achieve carbon neutrality since 2018, according to ACI's Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme. In May 2020, this certification was renewed and extended until 2022.
