EasyJet, Ryanair resume flights to Jordan

Amman, The low-cost airlines, EasyJet and Ryanair, have resumed regular flights to Aqaba’s King Hussein International Airport flying from European cities, Director General of the Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA), Abdul Razzaq Arabiyat, announced Sunday.

A statement by Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, Majd Shweikeh, said that this step was the result of continuous efforts over the past few years as the regular flights of these two carriers will positively reflect on the tourism and commercial sectors by increasing the number of European tourists coming to the Kingdom.

Arabiyat said that from this evening, the TPA, the Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZA) and Aqaba Airports Company (AAC) will start the official reception of EasyJet’s first flight from Milan, adding that flights from London, Berlin, Venice, Milan and Vienna will begin to arrive in Aqaba onboard EasyJet.

“A Ryanair flight coming from Milan, Italy, will also arrive at Aqaba airport on the 30th of this month,” he added, noting that the Irish low-coast carrier will have four main routes twice a week (Athens – Sofia – Rome – Cologne), in addition to a new line From Milan.
