Aqaba

Aqaba Port recorded a four percent increase in revenue in 2021 compared to the year before, reaching approximately JOD66 million.

The Director General of Aqaba Company for Ports Operation and Management (ACPOM), Khaled Maaitah, issued a press statement on Saturday saying the increase in the handling volume indicates that Aqaba Part is recovering from the repercussion of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, a total of 15 million tonnes of different supplies, livestock and vehicles were handled at the ports, he added.

Notably, passenger traffic increased by 17 percent reporting a total of 250,000 travelers.

Maaitah also mentioned a decline in container handling due to the increase in international freight rates and a decrease in demand by traders and investors to transport goods of all kinds from international markets.

As the first 2022 investment in Jordan’s Golden Triangle, Maaitah announced that a Djibouti ship loaded with 1,320 heads of camel arrived at the port and the camels have been transported to the southern city of Ma’an for breeding purposes.
