RJ suspends services to Kiev

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

kievRoyal Jordanian suspended its regular route between Amman and Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, effective March 27, 2016, after eight years of operations which started back in August 2008.

The decision comes in line with the 5-year business plan the company is executing; one of the pillars of the plan is network restructuring. Tourism and air transportation between Jordan and Ukraine lately saw a noticeable regression, affecting the feasibility of the route.   

RJ continuously studies the stations performance to take the appropriate decision, either by increasing frequency, decreasing it, open new markets or halting routes. Recently, RJ suspended routes to Delhi, Mumbai, Colombo, Lagos, Accra, Alexandria and Milano.   

The search is ongoing for more opportunities and new markets to broaden the route network, increase revenues and connect Jordan with more cities. Last year and this year, RJ added five new destinations to its network; they are Tabuk, Najaf, Ankara, Jakarta and Guangzhou that was launched in March 21 this year. A number of destinations are yet understudy.

Today, RJ operates directly to 55 destinations spread over four continents, and reaches more than 1,000 cities onboard its 14 oneworld partners with only one stop from Amman.
