Royal Jordanian launches flights to Kiev
Royal Jordanian has launched regular non stop flight between Amman and Ukrainian capital of Kiev.
According to Samer Majali, Royal Jordanian’s president and CEO, the twice-weekly flights will service business and tourist travel between the two countries.
He added: “The company opened this route after conducting feasibility studies, particularly given Ukraine's strategic geographic position in Eastern Europe.”
The Jordan-based airline will operate the Embraer 195 aircraft between the two cities, departing from Amman on Sundays and Wednesdays, and from Kiev on Mondays and Thursdays. Flights last approximately three-and-a-half hours.
Kiev, which is home to three million people, is the second new destination Royal Jordanian has launched this year. The airline is a member of airline alliance oneworld and currently serves 56 cities across four continents.
