Flights will depart to Najaf three times a week, and brings the total number of RJ destinations to Iraq to five: Najaf, Baghdad, Basra, Erbil, and Sulaymaniyah.

RJ CEO Samer Al-Majali said resuming operations to Najaf comes as part of RJ’s strategy, which focuses on enhancing operations, boosting the frequency of intraregional travel, and bolstering commercial, social, and cultural relations between the two countries.

The route is expected to serve primarily businesspeople, students, and Najaf residents traveling to Amman and beyond, he said. Additionally, it would encourage tourism to Jordan and support transit operations through Queen Alia International Airport, Majali added.

RJ operates more than 30 weekly flights between Jordan and Iraq; 14 weekly flights to Baghdad, nine weekly flights to Erbil, and three weekly flights each to Najaf, Basra, and Sulaymaniyah. The CEO noted that the company is now offering a discount of up to 20 percent on the ticket fares to these destinations.

Passengers who wish to book to or from Najaf are invited to visit rj.com or RJ’s mobile app, call the call center at +962 5100000, or visit RJ’s global sales offices or their preferred travel agent.
