Royal Jordanian will use one of its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners to fly from London to Amman, the airline has confirmed to Travel Daily.
The carrier is due to receive its first Dreamliner this August as assembly started at the planemaker’s Seattle factory this week.
Jordan’s national carrier is due to receive four B787s this year and another seven up to 2016, all of which will be used to replace its current Airbus A330 and A340 services.
Its London route is currently operated by an A330 although it was not made clear when it will be replaced by the new aircraft.
“Royal Jordanian operates its Airbus 330 aircraft to London, and this definitely means the Boeing 787 will be operating on that route,” a spokesperson for the airline told Travel Daily.
The new Dreamliner will have 270 seats in total in a two-class configuration: 24 full-flat seats in the Crown Class and 246 in economy.
Seats will have wider pitches than its current Airbus aircraft with new onboard services to be available from the airline.
