RJ to offer tours, transport on website
Amman, March 27, 2012
Royal Jordanian, the national carrier of the country, will offers more than 6,000 tours in over 110 countries including airport transfers on its website through an arrangement with online travel firm City-Discovery.com.
City-Discovery.com and its sister site World-Airport-Transfer.com specialize in the e-commerce sale of sightseeing tours, travel experiences and ground transportation worldwide.
The agreement also addresses RJ frequent travelers, whereby Royal Plus (the RJ Frequent Flyer Program) members can earn miles for each Jordanian Dinar spent on tours and transfers.
Seamlessly coupled with City-Discovery's extensive portfolio of travel experiences, passengers of Royal Jordanian can have access to carefully selected travel activities that meet a wide variety of traveler interests.
They can choose among guided city tours in London, Louvre museum tours in Paris; skip the line passes in Rome, multi-day packages from Bangkok, hot air balloon tours in Dubai and more. Other options include shopping tours, city breaks, gastronomy experiences and family leisure attractions such as theme parks and zoos.
Besides Amman and Dubai, activities in top Middle Eastern travel destinations such as Abu Dhabi, Cairo, Istanbul, Jerusalem and Doha are available.
Royal Jordanian also proposes shared and private transfer services between major airports, hotels and city centers.
“We are pleased to partner with City Discovery.com. RJ now offers enhanced services beyond the airline’s core business through the vast variety of programs and travel activities offered by City Discovery.com,” Royal Jordanian president and CEO Hussein Dabbas said.
"Passengers will be saving time and money. By directly booking tours and transfers with their flights, they secure their reservations especially for in-demand attractions in advance and enjoy very convenient prices. In addition to that, partnering with City-Discovery.com will help the airline see positive impact on its sales,” he added.
"Centrally located in Amman and a member of the oneworld airline alliance, Royal Jordanian Airlines is a convenient gateway to Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East,” City-Discovery.com's president and founder Emmanuel Issaurat said.
“It also represents a fast-growing region of outbound travelers. We're very excited to be offering them our travel possibilities presented in a familiar format thanks to Royal Jordanian's Arabic language setting, a first for online tours and activities providers.”
Issaurat added that City-Discovery.com will enable passengers visiting the RJ website to discover new destinations without the hassle of ticket lines and added fees. – TradeArabia News Service
