Civil Aviation plays an important role in society, at local, regional and international levels. This role stems from the fact that air transport effects economical, cultural, commercial and political aspects of life.

Moreover, air transport has been instrumental in bringing different people all over the world together and thus bridging cultural and geographical gaps and facilitating mutual understanding.

The development of this sector is controlled by many factors. During the last three decades Civil Aviation sector in Jordan has witnessed a rapid expansion and modernization. Due to the tireless support of the Hashemite Royal family, where H.M. the late King Hussein, H.M. King Abdulla II, and H.R.H. Prince Faysal, have taken particularly active part in the development of this sector.

The CAA (The legal predecessor of CARC) was established in 1950 to undertake affairs of aviation in Jordan and to form ties with the International Civil Aviation Organization and other associations. The Authority that began with limited financial and human capital was responsible for supervision and operation of both Jerusalem and Amman Civil Airports. However, the operation of Jerusalem Airport was discontinued in 1967 due to Israeli occupation. This led to the intensification of the use of Amman Civil Airport, resulting in the expansion of the airport's facilities.

Jordan has recently modernized its air navigation systems through the introduction of monopulse secondary radar and raster color displays, new flight data processing system and air traffic control simulator, state of art NAV.Aids and voice communication systems. Modernization of Jordan’s airports: Queen Alia International Airport, Amman Civil Airport /Marka and King Hussein International Airport/Aqaba is underway through introduction of new computerized systems, upgrade, and maintenance of other facilities. A great emphasis is placed on safety, security and facilitation to make air travel a pleasant experience.
