Among other leading destination in the Middle East is Baghdad, where the airline will be operating six additional weekly flights, thus bringing the total number of flights to 15 per week to the Iraqi capital city.
A spokesperson of Royal Jordanian said that the airline will now be serving a total of 52 destinations with the help of its modern and young fleet. The airline has introduced seven new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts ever since the end of 2014.
Travel experts said that the network enhancement is in line with Royal Jordanian’s efforts and commitment to strengthen its presence and further boost its connectivity to all those cities being served presently. Through its network consolidation, the airline also wanted to fulfill the increased travel demand during the peak summer season.
