QAIA Becomes First in Middle East to Achieve Level 4+ ‘Transition’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation Program

Airport International Group announced that Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) has become the first in the Middle East, the second in the ACI Asia-Pacific region and one of only 21 airports worldwide to achieve Level 4+ ‘Transition’ of the Airport Carbon Accreditation Program. The ‘Transition’ certificate - granted by Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific - is valid until the renewal date in May 2025.

QAIA was awarded the certificate following a rigorous review of its carbon management processes, which affirmed alignment with global climate goals to reach a net-zero carbon status by 2050, in addition to its establishment of a road map to reduce CO2 emissions from fuel and electricity consumption and the ongoing responsible compensation of residual CO2 emissions under its control - per the global airport industry’s response to climate change.

 “Since 2013, QAIA has been setting an example of what it means to be a climate-friendly airport and has been the first in the Middle East to achieve ‘Neutrality’. Such a proud feat is instrumental in highlighting not only QAIA, but also Jordan, on the global aviation stage. Given the deliberate industry-wide shift towards environmental best practices, we at Airport International Group are keen on building an even more sustainable and responsible international airport,” commented Nicolas Claude, CEO, Airport International Group. “On this note, I extend my sincerest thanks and congratulations to our team, partners and stakeholders on yet another distinguished milestone and for continuously going above and beyond to ensure QAIA remains a trailblasing, sustainable and tourism-enabling gateway within the region.”
