Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (August 22) launched its biggest ever Winter schedule to/from Amman and Aqaba with 25 routes including 4 new routes to Brussels, Madrid, Marseille, and Pisa for Winter ’23. This record schedule will see Ryanair operate in both Amman Airport and Aqaba Airport and support over 500 aviation jobs.
This year’s Winter ‘23 schedule marks an important milestone for Ryanair which over the past 5 years worked closely with its partners in the Jordan Tourism Board to transform Jordanian Tourism and connectivity, since the airline’s first flight took off from Amman to Paphos back in 2018 and since then, has grown to carry over 1.7 million passengers to/from Jordan.
Ryanair has developed an exciting new growth framework with the Jordan Tourism Board which will enable Ryanair to continue growing connectivity, passengers, tourism, and jobs in Jordan and allow more people to visit the numerous wonders of the Kingdom such as Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and the coastal Aqaba over the coming years while also offering Jordanians ultra-low-cost connectivity to visit friends or family in Europe.
Ryanair’s Jordan Winter ‘23 schedule will deliver:
• 25 total routes incl. 4 new routes Brussels, Madrid, Marseille, & Pisa
• Over 100 flights per week
• 30% growth vs Winter ‘22
• Over 600,000 passengers to/from Jordan p.a.
• Support over 500 local jobs
To celebrate Ryanair’s biggest ever Winter schedule for Jordan customers can now book a well-deserved Winter getaway at the lowest fares from just €29.99 one way for travel until Apr ‘24, available only on Ryanair.com.
