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.
