The two extra flights to JFK will be run via Montreal every Monday and Thursday. Royal Jordanian has been operating direct scheduled flights to Montreal, Canada, since 2007.
The most recent step is taken to serve the growing number of passengers flying on the Amman-New York route during the peak summer season.
RJ’s direct four weekly flights to JFK will rise to five weekly in August. Royal Jordanian operates frequent direct flights between Amman and North America using its wide-bodied A330 and A340 aircraft, including daily flights to Chicago and two weekly flights to Detroit, in addition to the flights to New York and Montreal mentioned above.
The two additional frequencies via Montreal will reach JFK Airport at 10:40 am, giving ample time to passengers wishing to connect to other cities in the US.
RJ was the first Arab carrier to start operations between the Middle East and New York, in 1977.
