To optimize the level of traffic safety and efficiency in the port, the Port of Aqaba VTS Centre will track all shipping on radar from entry into Jordanian waters to its assigned berth.
The VTS operators handle all direct communications with ships from the Port Control Tower in Aqaba Port. These operators provide shipping traffic with relevant information via the marine telephone channels (VHF).
The responsibility for safe navigation lies with the master of the ship at all times. Masters are encouraged to listen carefully and fully partake in VHF communications for safe navigation in the VTS area.
