Queen Alia International Airport

Queen Alia International Airport is Jordan’s largest airport and is located 30 kilometres south of the capital city, Amman. It is named after Queen Alia, who died in a helicopter crash in 1977. The airport is home to the country’s national flag carrier, Royal Jordanian Airlines. A state-of-the-art new terminal was inaugurated in 2013 to replace the airport’s older two passenger terminals and one cargo terminal.
