“Although passenger figures for November 2022 remained slightly below those reported during the same month in 2019, the gap is being reduced by new passenger profiles, mainly tourists arriving thanks to the efforts of the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), which recently launched the 'Kingdom of Time' campaign across Europe, promoting Jordan as a tourist destination. Groupe ADP also supported the marketing efforts of JTB by sharing the campaign across its Parisian airport network, showing an example of our collaborative efforts to bolster tourism and air traffic into the Kingdom," commented Airport International Group CEO, Nicolas Claude.
