Amman Queen Alia International Airport - a successful privately operated airport for the Levant
Jordan’s economy is surprisingly robust for a country that is surrounded by others with an actual or historical predilection for political instability. It has established itself as an attractive location for foreign direct investment and as a home for regional banks and finance houses.
Jordan’s main airport competes for business alongside a number of international ones, and also with another airport within Jordan. The national airline, Royal Jordanian, is an alliance member, but while Queen Alia International Airport’s geographical location hints at a possible hub role there is no desire to compete with the MEB3 intercontinentally, and such ambitions are limited to the Levant area of the Eastern Mediterranean.
This report examines Queen Alia International Airport by way of several sets of metrics, looking at the airports that can be considered rivals to it, and at its construction activities and ownership.
Vienna International Airport: matching its peers. A vital east-west hub
With its well-developed market economy, skilled labour force, and high standard of living, Austria is closely tied to other EU economies, especially Germany’s. The City of Vienna is one of Europe’s richest, and sitting as it does on the border of Eastern and Western Europe it has been able to benefit from trade between the two for many years. Its airport continues to do so today.
Only a decade ago it was underachieving for a wealthy capital city airport with high hub potential. But there have been considerable investments made in the infrastructure – which continue – and in addition Austrian Airlines has been absorbed into the Lufthansa Group, which has ultimately benefitted the airport. The airport now handles 22 million ppa, but growth rates recently have been low.
