The Ministry stated in a press on Sunday release that the busses that are provided by the program to transport the participants to different destinations across the Kingdom amounted to 1,222 accompanied by one tour guide for each bus.

Assistant Director General of Jordan Tourism Board and Director of Jannah Jo Yazan Al-Khudair explained that new trips included in the program covered Jerash, Ajloun, Tafileh, and Karak, along with overnight trips to Dana Wildlife Reserve near Tafileh, and the shrines of the Prophet’s companions in Karak Governorate.

He stressed that the programs committee is regularly evaluating and improving the trips quality to further motivate the public to visit Petra, a world wonder.

The program aims to catalyze and promote domestic tourism by providing transportation, a guide for each trip and meals.

Jannah Jo (which literally translates to Jordan is a paradise) seeks to partially offset the losses of the tourism sector due to Corona pandemic through engaging travel agencies in planning trips, transportation, providing tourist guides and arranging domestic flights.

Jannah Jo offers one-day trips to northern areas and parts of the south and overnight trips to the destinations most affected by the fallout like Aqaba, Petra and Wadi Rum, which suffered from the lack of foreign tourism.
