Royal Jordanian Airlines Resumes Tel Aviv-Amman Service


Royal Jordanian Airlines has renewed its daily Amman-Tel Aviv flights, after a three week pause, due to Operation Protective Edge.  The Jordanian airline decided to renew the scheduled flights as early as last week, according to a report in Globes.

Royal Jordanian Airlines Israel Country Manager Dvora Bruchstein explained, , "Royal Jordanian never stopped flying to Israel but only suspended flights for safety and security operational reasons. The company does not fly to other cities around the world that are in war situations."

The flights had originally been halted on July 23 when a Hamas rocket landed in Yehud, near Ben Gurion Airport.  But whereas most air carriers resumed their service within 48 hours, Royal Jordanian prolonged the suspension, while at the same time continuing to sell flights out of Tel Aviv to other global destinations via Amman.
