However, a report by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, late Tuesday, quoting the national carrier, said that passengers will be transported overland from Damascus and not by air, starting from October 3.

Buses will transport passengers from Syria and head to Queen Alia International Airport, pending resumption of flights “in the future”, the report said. RJ CEO Samer Majali told Petra that the carrier will make land transport service available for passengers to and from Syria who use its routes originating from Amman.

He said that buses will be “high quality and comfortable”, and will move passengers from Damascus city center to the airport. RJ stressed the need to adhere to public safety and health protocols.

In a report in Al-Ghad News early Tuesday, quoting a statement by Minister of Transport Wajih Azaizeh, travelers from Syria must bring with them a negative PCR test result issued by the approved laboratories in Syria 72 hours before departing for Jordan, in compliance with health protocols.

They must also be retested upon arrival at Queen Alia International Airport and must not leave the airport grounds until their results come out and are negative.
