Royal Jordanian will start a new direct regular route between Amman and the Turkish capital, Ankara, effective December 8, 2015, with three weekly flights.
Royal Jordanian President/CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat said that Royal Jordanian is expanding its network in Turkey by adding the Ankara route to that to Istanbul. This route is bound to cater for the demand of business traffic between the capital of Turkey and both Jordan and beyond. It will also serve Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.
Mr. Obeidat highlighted Ankara’s significant geographical location in central Turkey and at the crossroads of highways and railway networks. In addition, Ankara and its vicinity are important regional centres for trade and commerce.
He said that the new addition to the route network brings the number of Royal Jordanian destinations to 55, pointing out that two new destinations will be added to the Royal Jordanian route network before the end of the year.
Royal Jordanian will operate to Ankara, on Thursdays, Sundays and Tuesdays bringing the number of flights between Jordan and Turkey to between 12 and 17 weekly, depending on the seasonal demand.
