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.
