A third weekly rotation is now planned on the route between Amman And Brussels of the airline Royal Jordanian Airlines, which will be relaunched at the end of October after 10 years of absence in Belgium.

From October 26, 2023 as planned, the Jordanian national company will offer three and not two flights per week between its base in Amman-Queen Alia and the airport of Brussels-Zaventem, operated a priori by Airbus A319 which can accommodate 12 passengers in Business class and 108 in Economy. Departures will be scheduled on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. to arrive at 2:15 p.m., with return flights leaving Belgium at 3:15 p.m. to land at 10:00 p.m.

Royal Jordanian will be without direct or indirect competition on this route, which it had operated until 2012 and which is now part of its strategy to bring more tourists to Jordan.

Royal Jordanian commercial director Karim Makhlouf said in the spring: “ adding Brussels to our ever-expanding network will allow Belgian tourists to visit Jordan easily and directly. Facilitate tourism to the Kingdom is central to RJ’s new strategy, as is our commitment to further develop Amman as a primary gateway to the Levant, providing enhanced connectivity to our wider network “.

He added: “ this new route is a further step in our five-year growth plan, through which we also plan to significantly increase our fleet, which will grow from 24 to more than 40 devices over the next three to five years “. The alliance company Oneworld already announced last May the arrival of eight Embraer E2in addition to the twenty Airbus A320neo mentioned in October 2022.
