RJ to start Algiers flights on Feb 25

Amman, February 24, 2013

 

Royal Jordanian Airlines will start regular direct services to the Algerian capital, Algiers, on February 25, thus connecting Jordan and Algeria for the first time since the company’s establishment 50 years ago.
 
RJ President/CEO Amer Hadidi said there will be two weekly flights between Amman and Algiers, on Mondays and Wednesdays. As of April 1, the airline will add a third flight, on Thursdays. 
 
The Algiers route will see active traffic to the Kingdom from medical tourists. Jordan is fast becoming a very attractive destination for medical tourism in the region.
 
He stressed that connecting Amman with Algiers through a direct scheduled service is bound to boost tourism in both countries, and also develop economic relations.
 
Hadidi added that this route will feed other RJ routes in the region, particularly Jeddah and Medina, when Algerian passengers will transit via Amman to conduct Umrah and Haj in Saudi Arabia.  - TradeArabia News Service
