Emirates will add a third daily flight to Jordan from 1 August, representing a further ramping up of services to Amman after Emirates’ flights to Jordan went double daily in October 2012.
The new EK 905 will depart Dubai at 2155hrs and arrive in Amman at 2359hrs. The return flight, EK 906, will depart at 0345hrs and touch down in Dubai at 0745hrs. A combination of Boeing 777 and Airbus A330-200 aircraft will be used, as with the existing operation.
Jordan is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East and amongst the airline’s earliest routes, launching in 1986. In 2011, Emirates marked 25 years of service to Amman.
Tourists come from far and wide to see Jordan’s world-renowned attractions such as Petra and the Dead Sea.
