Royal Jordanian announced that it will add two new destinations to its route network – Lagos and and Accra. The new services will commence on 3 July 2013.
The company will operate the route (Amman-Lagos-Accra-Lagos-Amman) twice weekly with its wide-bodied, 280-seat Airbus A330s, on Wednesdays and Fridays.
President and CEO Amer Hadidi said: “The company is following an expansion strategy to find new tourism and travel markets in different countries in order to boost tourism to the kingdom and to generate more revenues for the airline, given the decline in tourism movement from the traditional markets of Europe and North America.”
He further added, “This new route will serve several types of tourism, such as medical and help business travelers and investors, thus help develop economic and trade relations. Moreover, the Lagos/Accra flight is bound to feed other RJ routes, for passengers transiting via Queen Alia International Airport on their way to Jeddah, Madina Munawarah, Dubai, Beirut, Delhi and others.”
