Airline introduces additional two flights per week during June and July to cope with summer demand
Royal Jordanian said on Sunday it will introduce an additional two weekly flights to New York during June and July, bringing the number of scheduled flights operating on the US route to six weekly.
The two extra flights to JFK will be run via Montreal every Monday and Thursday, the airline said in a statement.
The carrier said the extra flights were added to serve the growing number of passengers flying on the Amman-New York route during the peak summer season.
RJ's direct four weekly flights to JFK will rise to five weekly in August, the statement added.
Royal Jordanian operates frequent direct flights between Amman and North America using its wide-bodied A330 and A340 aircraft, including daily flights to Chicago and two weekly flights to Detroit.
Royal Jordanian was the first Arab carrier to start operations between the Middle East and New York in 1977.
