There are three major airports serving Jordan, two in Amman and one in Aqaba. These
are:


            Queen Alia International Airport is located just 36 km south of Amman. This
            airport handles 5.51 million passengers per year by the end of 2010. It offers an
            average of 82 international flights per day and is served by approximately 30
            international carriers in addition to Royal Jordanian airlines, the national carrier.
            Other major carriers include Air France, British Airways, Egypt Air, Kuwait
            Airways, Lufthansa and Saudi Arabian Airlines.


            Queen Alia International Airport currently has two parallel runways (12,007 feet
            each) and two terminals. The future expansion of the airport started operation in
            November 2007. The project is a US$750 million BOT transaction involving a 25-
            year contract for rehabilitation, expansion and operation. The expansion will help
            accommodate the increasing number of passengers and will raise the airport’s
            capacity to 9 Million passengers annually with a total of 100,000 square meters.
            So far, around 16%2 of the expansion has been completed while the entire project
            is scheduled to wrap up by spring of 2012.
            Under the terms of the agreement, the Investor3 is responsible for the
            rehabilitation of the existing terminal, development of a new US$600 million
            terminal and the operation and management of QAIA for a period of 25 years.


            King Hussein Airport is located in the port city of Aqaba and has an annual
            capacity of the terminal is at 1.5 million passengers. The airport can handle
            approximately 100 flights per day and currently serves a broad range of
            international and national carriers and destinations.

Air Cargo
Queen Alia International Airport in Amman and King Hussein Airport in Aqaba both have
dedicated air cargo facilities and handle all air freight to and from Jordan. Both airports
are located near free trade zones and are currently expanding their cargo facilities to
continue to meet Jordan’s needs well into the future.


Cargo is primarily carried by Royal Jordanian, which has a dedicated fleet of freight
aircraft for this purpose. It serves more than 28 airports throughout the Arab world and a
further 22 points in Europe, North America and Asia.


Royal Jordanian serves 54 destinations. It operates two Airbus A310 and one Boeing 737
(operated by Transworld Aviation) aircrafts on a regular schedule and flies to multiple
destinations including Baghdad, Tel Aviv, London, New York, Cairo, Saudi Arabia,
Chicago, Delhi, and Bangkok, among other major destinations. Royal Jordanian’s wide-
bodied passenger fleet also carries freight, courier packages and mail to Cairo, Jeddah,
Riyadh, Detroit, Chicago, Delhi, Colombo and Bangkok. The airline’s narrow-bodied
passenger aircraft carries freight and mail to the 42 other destinations the airline serves.


Moreover, almost all international airlines, including, British Airways and Middle East
Airways, offer some cargo capability.




                                                                                 Page 4 of 6
