A brand new Airbus A320 joined the Royal Jordanian fleet on April 29.

With the addition of ‘Mount Nebo’, as the new plane is called, the RJ fleet now comprises 32 planes that serve 59 destinations.

The latest addition will serve medium-range routes and is the first of seven new A320 and A321 planes that will join the fleet this year and in 2012.

The RJ plan to modernise part of its medium-haul fleet includes replacement of the current six Airbus A320s and 321s with newly manufactured ones of the same model, and the addition of one new aircraft.

After receiving the seven aircraft, the medium-range fleet will comprise 13 new aircraft of the A320 family: four Airbus A319s, four A321s and five A320s.

This plane and the six others joining the fleet will use V2500 engines.

The new plane has 136 seats, 16 of which are dedicated to Crown Class. Every seat on the plane has access to audio and video on demand.
