Royal Jordanian adds Khartoum route to its weekly flights
Royal Jordanian Airlines (RJ) is will launch its first direct flight line between Amman and Khartoum this week. RJ will fly to Khartoum twice a week on Sundays and Fridays, reported Petra. The airline conducted a study earlier this year that showed an increasing demand for flights between the two states.
RJ faced a serious financial crisis in the wake of the September 11 events, and received a generous two billion dollar rescue package from the Jordanian government. The company operates a fleet of 14 planes, including Airbus 310 and 320 planes that fly to 47 destinations. The national carrier is to be restructured into a public shareholding entity under a privatization scheme adopted last February. — (menareport.com)
