RJ to start implementation of US security measures

AMMAN, January 17, 2018

From January 18, Royal Jordanian (RJ) will start implementing the additional security measures required by the US authorities for US-bound flights.

The additional security measures- which include security interviews with every passenger at check-in or the boarding gate- are applicable on all international airlines operating direct flights to the US, and include all nationalities flying to the US, with no exception.

While they were required from October 26, 2017, the US authorities granted all airlines the option of delaying the implementation process for a limited period of time.

RJ passengers are still required to be at the airport three hours prior to their scheduled US-bound flights, in order to avoid delays and allow more time for the implementation of the new security procedures.

Royal Jordanian currently operates 11 weekly flights to the US: five to Chicago, four to New York and two to Detroit, with a connection in Montreal. - TradeArabia News Service
