Royal Jordanian Airlines has launched a new service from its base in Amman to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, via Kuala Lumpur.
The Oneworld carrier used to operate flights to Jakarta between 1992 and 2002 but these were suspended for commercial reasons.
According to Royal Jordanian’s president Suleiman Obeidat, the reopening of the route coincides with strong air traffic and economic growth in Indonesia.
The brief one-hour stopover in Kuala Lumpur allows the carrier to attract strong feeder traffic from passengers commuting between the Malaysian and Indonesian capitals.
Flight RJ184 departs Amman at 0130 and arrives in Kuala Lumpur at 1625. The service then departs Kuala Lumpur at 1720 before arriving in Jakarta at 1825. Meanwhile, the return flight sees RJ185 take off from Jakarta at 1955, and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 2255. The flight will then depart the Malaysian capital again at 2355 before touching down in Amman at 0415 the following day.
Flights will be served with the Airbus A330-200, which Royal Jordanian has fitted with a two-class configuration, consisting of 24 angle-flat seats in business and 259 standard seats in economy.
