PM tours newly-opened airport terminal.

Amman, Apr 6 (Petra) -- Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Saturday toured the newly-opened terminal at the Queen Alia International Airport to check on services and facilities at the arrivals and departures halls and ensure the soundness of procedures for passengers.

Ensour, accompanied by ministers and concerned civic and military officials, said any delay at the multi-million-dinar, state-of-the-art terminal is "utterly unacceptable," noting that the new facility, one of the Kingdom's key mega projects, would help to reinvigorate the tourism and transport sectors and lure in foreign capital to prop up the economy.

The premier was told that the number of passengers and airlines using the airport is steadily rising.

During the visit, Ensour chaired a meeting attended by the ministers of interior and municipal affairs, finance, labour and transport, planning and international cooperation and tourism, Royal Jordanian RJ board chairman and CEO, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the directors of security and customs departments as well as other officials.

The prime minister congratulated the Kingdom for accomplishment of "this strategic project" and hailed airport authorities for providing the equipment and skilled manpower needed to ensure a comfortable, smooth and safe atmosphere that saves passengers time and effort.

"I'm very happy to be reassured that the cadres that have been trained are working efficiently in a manner that suits Jordan's bright image and achievements," he said.
