Reportedly, the project will serve as a key player in strengthening Aqaba’s status as a major player in the business hub as well as the regional tourism sector. Being part of the wider series of agreements between the Aqaba Development Corporation and the AD Ports Group, the project will also include a new state-of-the-art cruise terminal in Aqaba.

The latter is projected to lead to an increase in footfall owing reference to the development of the King Hussein International Airport. In addition to the aforementioned, the project will gain the convenience of being near a modernized multi-purpose port.
