After a beautiful presentation at the IFTM Top Résa show where Jordan was the country in the spotlight, horror came knocking at the doors of the Hashemite kingdom. This is why Dr. Abed Al Razzaq Arabiyat, Director General of the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), wants to send a reassuring message.
It seems obvious that many travelers will want to change their plans to the Middle East. Nobody knows today what the consequences of the attacks by Hamas terrorists will be, especially in view of the strong responses planned by Israel.
Below is the letter from the Director General of the Jordan Tourism Board
“In light of recent developments in Gaza, we would like to emphasize that Jordan is known to be a safe and welcoming destination for tourists from around the world. Jordan prides itself on its reputation as a safe and hospitable country.
