Commenting on this new route between Amman and London Stansted was Royal Jordanian Chief Commercial Officer, Karim Makhlouf:

“Our new route to London Stansted will make it easier than ever for tourists from the UK to discover Jordan’s incredible wonders.

“Promoting and driving tourism to the Kingdom is a key focus of our new corporate strategy—as is our emphasis on further developing Amman as the primary gateway to the Levant by offering improved connectivity to our broader network.

“This new route is yet another step-in line with Royal Jordanian’s ambitious five-year growth plan, which includes increasing our current fleet of 24 aircraft to more than 40 aircraft in the coming three to five years.”

Adding to this was Ciaran Brannigan, London Stansted Commercial Director:

“We are delighted to announce the addition of another exciting destination to London Stansted’s network, giving our passengers even more choice with a world-class airline.

“As well as being a city full of history, unique architecture, art galleries, and museums, Amman boasts wonderful restaurants and a buzzing nightlife.

“The route will also give tourists the opportunity to visit the country’s golden triangle, which includes the Wadi Rum desert, Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world, and Aqaba, a popular diving site on the Red Sea.

“People from the East of England and London will now have the chance to explore this beautiful country flying from their local airport.”

All eyes will be on how this new route performs next year!
