Queen Alia International Airport Becomes First in Middle East to Achieve Level 4+ ‘Transition’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation

July 6, 2022

Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) operated by Airport International Group 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 programme. 

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.
