RJ...expanding its operations

RJ to commence Ankara flights in December

AMMAN, November 10, 2015

Royal Jordanian (RJ), the flag carrier of Jordan, will start a new direct regular route between Amman and the Turkish capital, Ankara, next month, with three weekly flights

Captain Suleiman Obeidat, RJ president and CEO, said: “This route is bound to cater for the demand of business traffic between the capital of Turkey and both Jordan and beyond. It will also serve Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.”

RJ first started operating to Ankara in 1989 and suspended it in 2004 for commercial reasons.

Ankara’s Esenboğa International Airport, which RJ will be using, was named the best airport in Europe by ACI Europe. In 2014, it served more than 11 million passengers in total.

Beginning December 8, the new addition to RJ's network will bring the number of global destinations to 55, Obeidat noted.

Royal Jordanian will operate to Ankara on Thursdays, Sundays and Tuesdays, bringing the number of flights between Jordan and Turkey to between 12 and 17 weekly, depending on the seasonal demand. – TradeArabia News Service
