United Airlines launches new non-stop flight from U.S. to Jordan

Published on : Wednesday, October 27, 2021

United Airlines is launching direct flights from Washington DC to Amman starting May 5, 2022, and will fly three times a week. This is the first direct flight to connect the two capital cities.

Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President International Network and Alliances said that they are excited to launch the new capital to capital, Washington DC to Amman, service, making it easier to connect more people to Jordan and the rich heritage and culture that the country has to offer.

The announcement from United Airlines shows the airline’s confidence in the destination as international travel starts to pick up after the devastation of the pandemic. The move also supports a recent survey the Jordan Tourism Board completed that indicated that 2022 is poised to break travel records to the destination. The survey also showed that 65 percent of trade operators in the United States had travel bookings in the fall of 2021, compared to only 15 percent the season prior.

Shared Abed Al Razzaq Arabiyat, Managing Director of the Jordan Tourism Board said that they are excited to welcome the legacy carrier to Jordan to help open up business between the two capitals Washington DC and Amman. We always welcome American travellers to the Kingdom to experience the incredible culture and the diversity Jordan has to offer.  

 They are looking forward to welcoming United Airlines to Amman, and working together to bring even more travellers to experience our incredible country, said Malia Asfour, Director of the Jordan Tourism Board North America.

With clear COVID protocols in place throughout the country, travellers should feel at ease visiting Jordan. This is a big step in linking Jordan’s capital with Washington DC, and encouraging American travellers to book a meaningful travel experience at world-renowned attractions like Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea.
