Royal Wings, a subsidiary of Royal Jordanian Airline, in cooperation with the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA), will commence twice weekly scheduled flights, between Aqaba and Cairo, starting tomorrow, Apr 21. The other day of the week is Tuesday.
This is the second regular service operated by Royal Wings, that departs from Aqaba. The company had launched a regular flight between Aqaba and Beirut. The airline operates these two services, following a cooperation agreement signed with ASEZA.
The new service, between Aqaba and Cairo, is part of Royal Wings’ efforts to strengthen Aqaba’s position, on the commercial and international tourism map.
Along with serving the tourists and merchants of the two countries, this flight will serve thousands of Egyptian workers in Aqaba.
It will also facilitate trips from Egypt to Jordan, for those interested in religious tourism, who desire to visit the Baptism site and other Christian sites in the kingdom.
