Amman, Jordan – Airport International Group (AIG), the Jordanian consortium responsible for the rehabilitation, expansion, and operation of the Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), has announced the selection of the registered company “National Company For Car Parking Systems Ltd” (trademark “Mawgif”) , as the preferred bidder to provide car parking services at the QAIA’s new terminal.
The comprehensive process to select a car parking partner began in May 2011, and was open to submissions from both local and international parking service providers.
The ultimate objective of the bidding and evaluation process is to offer the best quality services for travelers. The process of selecting the most suitable finalist was the result of thorough analysis based on objective criteria to ensure the utmost fairness and transparency. Strict technical and financial requirements were examined in the evaluation process, which included the involvement of the Project Management Unit from the Ministry of Transport.
“With the professional services of Mawgif, we are guaranteeing that visitors and travelers using personal transportation will have a smooth experience,” commented Kjeld Binger, CEO of AIG. “With the choice of Mawgif, we are closer to our goal of providing a world-class experience that reflects the advanced nature of the new terminal and the quality of services offered.”
Joseph Griffin, CEO of Mawgif, commented: “We welcome the opportunity to operate this prestigious facility. Our goal is to provide customers with a pleasant, user friendly, and safe experience based on using the latest parking technology.”
AIG’s investment of US $750 million to build the state-of-the-art terminal – in addition to US $100 million spent on rehabilitating the terminals currently in use – is intended to develop Jordan’s primary gateway, the QAIA, as a regional niche hub. The terminal is in the end stages of construction with 85% completed to date.
