A major airport expansion, along with the addition of new international air routes, is expected to boost tourism and ease bottlenecks in the near term. Niche markets like medical tourism and ecotourism are offering promising avenues for sector expansion. The industry resumed brisk revenue growth in 2012, marking its continued recovery from the regional slowdown. The meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions segment is expected to continue to grow, and several medium-sized venues already exist in Amman for these purposes, further helping to boost tourism’s contribution to the economy.
