AMMAN — Transport Minister Alaa Batayneh on Wednesday checked on the progress of work at the new Queen Alia International Airport terminal, being implemented at a cost of $750 million.

Airport International Group CEO Kjeld Binger briefed the minister on the project, slated to open on February 28, 2013.

The new terminal will increase the airport’s capacity to nine million passengers annually, nearly tripling the current capacity of 3.5 million passengers annually, while future expansion will allow the airport to reach a capacity of 12 million passengers a year.
