The Louis Berger Group has announced the successful transfer of full operations to the Queen Alia International Airport New Passenger Terminal Building in Amman, Jordan.
The firm provided operations monitoring support during the eight-hour overnight transfer.
Louis Berger is the engineering, procurement and construction independent engineer for the airport rehabilitation and expansion programme on behalf of Airport International Group.
Diego Rincón, Louis Berger’s global aviation director, said: “We are proud to be a part of this project considered a landmark partnership between the public and private sectors.
“It’s an outstanding example of Louis Berger’s Global Aviation reach and influence.”
Inaugurated by His Majesty King Abdullah II earlier this month, the new terminal increases the airport’s capacity to handle approximately nine million passengers annually.
Construction for the project began in November 2007.
Demolition of the existing terminal and additional expansion of the new terminal will begin immediately as part of the project’s next phase.
In the second phase of the project, the terminal will be expanded to provide services for 12 million passengers.
