Royal Jordanian and the Jordan Hospitals’ Association (JHA) signed a memorandum of understanding at RJ’s headquarters to have a strategic partnership and coordinate with authorities involved in medical and therapeutic tourism.
RJ President and CEO, Haitham Misto, and president of the JHA, Zuhair Abu Faris, signed the agreement that is bound to make use of the potential in this vital sector, reflecting positively on the national economy and boosting Jordan’s reputation in this field regionally and internationally.
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 in various ways at its 50 stations worldwide.
Under the framework of the MoU, Misto said, 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 in the world since Jordan has advanced medical and therapeutic capabilities and distinguished expertise in the field.
