RJ president/CEO Hussein Dabbas said that this move is a result of the great demand on travel between the two countries, in light of the close relations that connect Jordan and Sudan in all economic and commercial fields. Additionally, the increased service will easily facilitate the growing movement of students and businessmen between the two countries.
He added that expanding the offered seat capacity on the Amman-Khartoum sectors aims at serving the active medical tourism of the Sudanese citizens who visit Jordan to receive medical treatment in the Jordanian hospitals that enjoy high reputation and confidence from the Sudanese public. Moreover, the increased frequency serves transit passengers traveling to the Middle East region passing via Queen Alia International Airport.
According to Dabbas, RJ, the oneworld carrier, is keen to develop the air traffic between Jordan and Sudan in the interest of both countries’ citizens and people with different interests of frequent visits. He indicated that Royal Jordanian regularly serves Khartoum using the Airbus A320 aircraft that are distinguished with seat and legroom comfort, and high technical specifications, particularly the Audio Video On Demand (AVOD) system for each Crown and Economy class passenger.
He mentioned that the airline significantly increased the frequency of its operations to several destinations on its route network in response to the growing demand to travel on board RJ aircraft during this summer season. It increased flight frequencies operated to and from Amman to more than 110 daily.
And this demand is resulted from the various and diversified facilities provided by RJ to passengers, and the punctuality in take offs and landings. Additionally, considerable improvements are seen in the air and ground services, and travel procedures are now easier for being automated.
