Amman, Jordan

Transportation

Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), located 35 km/22 miles south of Amman, is Jordan’s principal airport. The QAIA is expanding and plans to serve nine million passengers by 2011. Another airport that services charter flights is Amman Airport in Marka. Aqaba’s King Hussein International Airport (KHIA) is the gateway to the Red Sea and is becoming an important regional hub for business and leisure travelers. It is the only airport in Jordan to operate an Open Skies policy.

 
Public Transportation
Buses

Public transport service is very efficient in and around Amman. Several public and privately owned buses operate across Jordan at fairly reasonable costs. In addition, a number companies offer charter bus and regular tours to most sites in Jordan in a fleet of modern, air‑conditioned coaches.

Taxis

Taxis are inexpensive and often the most convenient form of transportation in Jordan. The white‑painted “service taxis” ride fixed routes and are shared. Private taxis are either yellow or silver and have meters.
