Jordan Aviation eyes USA destinations

Posted 13 January 2021 · Add Comment

Jordan Aviation has filed a formal request with the US Department of Transportation to begin flights to the USA in competition to the country’s national carrier Royal Jordanian (RJ).

The privately-owned airline from Amman aims to begin services within the next three months but has not yet announced its destination plans or the aircraft it will use for the routes, although the airline operates five A330-200s and two Boeing 767-200s.
RJ currently shows flights to Chicago and New York. The request from Jordan Aviation suggests it would carry scheduled passenger charter flights plus cargo such as PPE or other medical goods.
