Tuesday, May 27, 2014

In celebration of Jordan’s 68th Independence Day anniversary, Airport International Group (AIG) - the Jordanian company responsible for the rehabilitation, expansion and operation of Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) - has carried out several activities at QAIA on Thursday 22 and Sunday 25 May, 2014, offering travelers and guests a glimpse of authentic Jordanian customs.

As part of the festivities, AIG employees wore branded Independence Day t-shirts, served Arabic coffee and distributed the Jordanian Hattah headdress - both of which are traditional symbols of Jordan’s heritage - to passengers traveling through QAIA. AIG also brought in the popular national folklore entertainers, Turath Ma’an Group, who performed a live dabke dance in front of airport-goers.   

“Jordan is renowned worldwide for its warm hospitality, rich culture and vibrant history, and as the Kingdom’s prime gateway to the world, we sought to make this day a truly memorable experience,” commented AIG CEO Kjeld Binger. “I would like to thank our partners for helping us make the celebrations a remarkable success, as well as wish my fellow colleagues and Jordanians around the world a very happy Independence Day.”
