Emirates to fly twice daily to Jordan

Article By: news

Emirates will fly twice daily to Jordan from 1st October, providing greater access to one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East.

Amman is one of Emirates’ longest established routes. The airline has been flying to the Jordanian capital since 1986, the year after Emirates was launched.

On September 1 last year, Emirates marked 25 years of flights to Jordan, a service that began with just three flights per week.

Emirates currently flies to Amman with a combination of Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-300 and Airbus A330-200 aircraft, offering an exciting range of in-flight entertainment and the hospitality of highly trained international cabin crew. 

The journey from Dubai to Amman takes about three hours. The weekly capacity in the belly-hold of the aircraft serving the route will hit 200 tonnes in each direction, while businesses will also benefit from Emirates’ rapidly expanding network, with new trade lanes emerging with each additional destination, a trend which is set to continue as the 220 aircraft it has on order join its fleet.

Emirates operates flights on a daily schedule from Malta to Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus.
