AMMAN — The Cabinet on Monday decided to exempt airline tickets for passengers leaving the Kingdom from the King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba from the $60 departure tax, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. The decision applies to all airlines.

The Cabinet had previously exempted tickets of low-cost and charter flights from this tax.

Petra said the decision is aimed at increasing flight movement into the port city of Aqaba, 330km south of Amman, and, in turn, the number of tourists.
