Royal Jordanian has announced operations of a regular route to the Chinese city of Guangzhou from today 21 March 2016.
The route will be serviced with three weekly flights. The frequency of the flights will be increased to meet future passenger demand.
RJ’s Boeing 787 will be deployed on this route. The inaugural flight will host an RJ delegation headed by RJ’s chief commercial officer Dr Majdi Sabri, officials from Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) and tour operators.
Guangzhou will be RJ’s second Chinese destination and the fifth in the Far East. The others are: Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta.
Royal Jordanian President/ CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat said that adding Guangzhou to the route network is in line with the strategy that RJ is now implementing; one of the pillars of this strategy is to review the route network and open new, profitable markets.
