The Royal Jordanian (RJ) achieved JD4.3 million in net profit during the first quarter of 2005, while its losses over the same period last year were estimated at JD1.4 million.
The RJ's revenues for the same period amounted to JD91.3 million compared to JD75.1 million in the same period of last year, Director General and the Executive President of the RJ, Samir Majali told Petra News Agency.
