Two new Airbus A330-200 aircraft joined the Royal Jordanian fleet. The planes will be dedicated to serve the airline’s long- and medium-range routes to the Far East and London.
He mentioned that the Airbus A330s that join RJ’s 31-plane fleet were acquired because of the delay in the delivery of the 11 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which will start joining the fleet in 2013. The B787s were scheduled to join the airline at the beginning of 2011.
Dabbas (RJ CEO) also pointed out that last year RJ concluded its short- and medium-haul fleet modernization program, having introduced 19 newly manufactured aircraft: 12 Airbus aircraft of the A320 family, and seven Embraer 195 and 175. RJ will also acquire a new Embraer 175 in the last quarter of this year. By the end of 2010, RJ will start renewing its Airbus A340s operating on long flights.
He added that RJ’s Airbus A330 is a wide-bodied aircraft that seats 283 passengers, 24 in Crown class. It holds 15 tons of cargo and flies a range of 13,400 km non stop.
It enjoys very high standards of comfort and luxury, in terms of seat pitch and in-flight entertainment systems, on all Crown and Economy seats, where each passenger can watch his/her favorite program on a personal in-seat screen.
Royal Jordanian will resume its regular flights to the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, also inaugurates its direct flights to Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
P.S. 32″ in the economy class and 62″ in the Crown Class, where seats can recline to be lie flat.28 May 2010
