Jordan to issue bids for airport project

Jordan has invited bids to convert its Amman chartered and VIP airport into a regular passenger airport, as part of plans to ease growing air traffic in the kingdom, a newspaper in the Arab country reported on Wednesday.

The cabinet has approved the project to turn the airport in the Marka district, nearly five kilometres Northeast of Amman city centre, into a full international passenger airport, the Arabic language daily Al-Rai said, quoting an unnamed government source.
