The airline opens up travel and tourism to Jordan and beyond.
Royal Jordanian will begin offering direct, three-times-weekly flights to Copenhagen on June 3, from the Jordanian capital Amman.
The new route “aims to entice more Scandinavian tourists to Jordan, while also facilitating business travel and enhancing trade between the two countries,” the company says.
Operated with an Airbus A320, it will be flown on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, departing Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport at 10:45 and arriving in Copenhagen at 14:30.
The return flights are scheduled to depart from Copenhagen at 15:25, arriving in Amman at 21:00.
“RJ will continue to review its network and look for new markets to better enhance traffic and connect Jordan to the world, in line with our vision and strategy to become the airline of choice in the Middle East and the Levant,” commented Stefan Pichler, the airline’s president and chief executive.
First in Scandinavia
“Copenhagen is the 45th destination on RJ’s network and its first station in the Scandinavian region. It gives travellers the chance to visit other cities in northern Europe, and also offers those travelling from the Nordic countries the chance to visit Jordan with its great tourist and historical sites, and benefit from RJ’s global network, which connects them to the Middle East, the Gulf and the Far East via Amman,” Pichler continued.
Royal Jordanian occasionally offers charter flights from Copenhagen and the other Nordic capitals, which are operated by a small subsidiary company, Royal Wings, from Aqaba.
