Wizz Air has launched a three-times-weekly service to Jordan’s capital city.

The flights take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with one-way fares starting from £36.

This follows the recent launch of routes from London Luton to Prague, Sharm El Sheikh, Tallinn and Hurghada. Wizz Air now offers over 80 routes from the airport.

Wizz Air adds seven routes from Luton and Gatwick airports

Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK said:

“We are very excited to announce the launch of our new route to Amman, a capital city bursting with life and the gateway to the historic country of Jordan.

“We are constantly striving to both diversify and expand our network and are pleased to be able to offer our passengers even more exciting and affordable travel opportunities beyond Europe, following the launch of our flights from London Luton Airport to Sharm-El Sheik. We look forward to welcoming customers onboard our young, efficient, and sustainable aircraft.”

Nayef Al-Fayez, minister of tourism and antiquities, and chairman of the Jordan Tourism Board, added:

“The launch of this route sits within the framework of the Jordan Tourism Board and marks the start of a new direct flight through Queen Alia International Airport connecting Amman and London. It also promotes Jordanian tourism, highlighting the many positive attractions that the country has to offer.”

Jonathan Rayner, chief commercial officer at London Luton Airport, also commented:

“We are delighted that Wizz Air UK is adding this exciting new destination to our departure boards. The timing of this launch couldn’t be better as we approach what is set to be our busiest Christmas period since 2019.

“Amman is already showing all the signs of establishing itself as a very popular destination and passengers can enjoy a smooth and friendly passenger experience when choosing London Luton Airport and Wizz Air.”
