Located 35 kilometers from the heart of the capital of Amman, Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) was first inaugurated in 1983 to become Jordan's key gateway to the world. The airport provides passenger, air cargo and aviation support services.

The airport, which extends across 19 million square meters, includes two parallel runways of 3,660 meters in length and 61 meters in width, with a separation of 1,446 square meters. The new Foster + Partners-designed terminal, which was inaugurated in March 2013 under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan and Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, is expected to increase annual passenger capacity from the initial 3.5 million to 9 million in phase 1, and to 12 million in phase 2.

Expansion works are being implemented by the Jordanian company, Airport International Group (AIG). AIG gathers regional investors and international experts in construction and airport operations to fulfill its mandate, as granted by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, to manage and redevelop Jordan's premier gateway under a 25-year Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) concession.
