Jordan airport welcomes first Nordwind Airlines flight

AMMAN, November 11, 2018

Jordan's Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) recently welcomed the inaugural Nordwind Airlines flight to the kingdom.

The Russian low-cost carrier serves passengers travelling between Amman and Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport through weekly flights every Sunday and Wednesday.

The newly-established route was commemorated with the customary ‘water arch’ salute and a welcoming ceremony attended by representatives from Airport International Group - operator of the Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan Tourism Board and Nordwind Airlines.

The latest addition brings the total number of airlines serving QAIA to 46, divided between scheduled passenger airlines and local charter and cargo carriers. This step corresponds with Airport International Group’s goal to attract more low-cost carriers, given their significant role in enhancing the kingdom’s accessibility to passengers of different backgrounds and financial abilities.

“We’re very pleased for Nordwind Airlines to join QAIA’s growing airline network, as it grants passengers travelling to and from Moscow an alternative airport option. As Jordan’s prime gateway to the world, we strive to collaborate with in-demand carriers in order to cover a broad spectrum of destinations within the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. In doing so, we are helping to link travellers worldwide to the kingdom, thus positively impacting the national economy, particularly the tourism sector. We look forward to forging new airline partnerships that cater to passenger needs and offer them the comfortable, convenient and affordable air travel experience they desire,” said Kjeld Binger, CEO of Airport International Group. - TradeArabia News Service
