rj a321 a320Royal Jordanian and the Jordan Hospitals Association (JHA) signed a memorandum of understanding at RJ’s headquarters, in order to build a strategic partnership between the two sides and coordinate with authorities involved in medical and therapeutic tourism.

RJ President/CEO Captain Haitham Misto expressed the airline’s satisfaction at working closely with JHA and all parties involved in developing tourism, particularly medical tourism, for which Jordan is well known, saying that there are national efforts to develop this sector and to attract more visitors from all over the world.

He said that RJ and JHA will cooperate directly with the Ministry of Tourism and the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) to achieve the joint goal of boosting Jordan’s position as a country that attracts tourists seeking medical assistance, and highlighted RJ’s role in promoting Jordanian medical capabilities through its different tools at its 50 stations worldwide.

Under the framework of the MoU, said Misto, the airline will offer all possible travel facilities to the patients and their companions to meet their travel needs, in collaboration with JHA and JTB. He added that national institutions should exert more efforts to invest in the sites providing medical care, which are spread around the kingdom, and promote them to the world as Jordan has advanced medical and therapeutic capabilities and distinguished expertise in the field.

JHA believes in the significance of medical tourism in supporting the national economy, and that the association will spare no effort to enhance this type of tourism at both Arab and international levels, in view of the significant progress achieved by the Jordanian medical sector and the natural medical tourist sites existing in the Kingdom.
