New and resuming flightsAdditionally, RJ plans to resume its direct flights to the Algerian capital starting March 16, as well as operate scheduled flights to Sharm El-Sheikh, Antalya, and Trabzon from the beginning of April.

Starting from September 23, direct flights to Düsseldorf in Germany will be launched with two weekly flights. On May 29, Royal Jordanian Airlines will start operating a new route between Amman and Stockholm.

Manama in Bahrain will be back on the Royal Jordanian Airlines' map again in the middle of this year, when the company will operate direct flights between Amman and Manama in Bahrain after suspending flights to the city in 2004.

By the third quarter of 2023, Royal Jordanian Airlines will operate its first-ever scheduled flight between Amman and Al-Ula International Airport, with two weekly flights in collaboration with the Petra Development and Tourism Authority and the Royal Commission for Al-Ula.

Larger networkVice chairman and CEO of RJ, Samer Majali, said that adding new destinations to the airline's network will make it more vibrant and sustainable, supporting the company's rapid expansion strategy to lift the company out of years of recession caused by regional conditions and the coronavirus crisis.

Majali added that RJ aims to build one of the largest networks in the region and to remain the leading airline in the Levant region.

Furthermore, the airline plans to increase its fleet size from 24 aircraft to more than 40 aircraft over the next three to five years to keep up with growth and development, supporting national efforts to promote Jordan as a tourist destination and connecting Amman to these major stations by providing many travel options for passengers and building a robust regional airline network through the capital Amman.
