Mesto, speaking to journalists at the Ministry of Transport on Sunday, said the Kingdom “always seeks to increase the number of airlines operated with various countries worldwide,” with the aim of promoting economic openness and supporting growth, as aviation helps stimulate economic development.

Mesto said CARC has signed more air transport agreements with various countries globally, noting that the pacts constitute the “cornerstone to operate airlines between Jordan and other countries globally.”

In a related context, Mesto announced the intention of Turkish Airlines to launch flights to Aqaba early next year, as Jordan’s port city represents “an attractive” destination for many international airlines, and also due to its exemptions and privileges that support air travel.
