Ryanair to start flights to Jordan

Ryanair to start flights to Jordan

The extra flights from the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) in W18/19 strengthens Ryanair's position as Budapest's second-largest carrier, and is expected to offer in excess of 2.3 million seats from the airport this year.

The Irish airline said 14 routes to Amman and Aqaba airports from Europe will commence from March. In the winter months, it will add four routes to Aqaba, the gateway to numerous country's top tourist destinations such as the Red Sea and the ancient city of Petra.

Abed Arabiyat, managing director of the Jordan Tourism Board, added: "Opening up new routes to the kingdom from several crucial markets is key in bringing tourists for extended stays in Jordan". The industry contributed nearly 20% to GDP in 2016, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council, and that is forecast to rise to nearly 23% by 2027.

Is Ryanair's rocket-fuelled growth about to fizzle out?

Aqaba routes will be twice weekly to Athens, Cologne, Rome Ciampino and Sofia.

"These routes will introduce new business and leisure travellers from eleven European countries to one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world", Mr O'Brien added. These are available for booking until midnight on Wednesday 7 February.

Starting next month, Ryanair will begin flying to Jordan from Cyprus.

"Enhancing air connectivity is one of the key areas Jordan is focusing on given its impact on unlocking economic growth through attracting business investment as well as spurring tourism", Jordan's Minister of Tourism Lina Annab said in a statement welcoming Ryanair's announcement.

Initially, Ryanair will fly to the city of Amman, the capital city of Jordan and soon after they will also fly to the city of Aqaba.
