Royal Jordanian signs global agreement with AccesRail

Posted 14 November 2016 · Add Comment

Royal Jordanian has signed a partnership agreement with AccesRail, an IATA travel partner with its own carrier code (9B), that allows passengers to reach AccesRail's destinations that connect to some of RJ's major gateway cities.

RJ’s President/CEO Captain Sulaiman Obaidat and AccesRail VP business Development Denis Grenier signed the agreement.

Following this agreement, Royal Jordanian Airlines joins the likes of some hundred other airlines in an interline agreement with AccesRail. RJ is the first airline to sign a fully global agreement encompassing all major AccesRail’s destinations via train in Canada, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Great Britain or via buses in Detroit, the U.S. 

Thus Royal Jordanian expands its reach through AccesRail’s 15+ rail and coach partners, to better service the needs of the airline customers traveling to more than 100 destinations using one intermodal ticket that can be issued at any of RJ’s sales offices worldwide, the airline’s travel agents or online which will be launched very soon. 

Passengers can book their rail transportation through all RJ’s sales channels to seamlessly connect to cities beyond the airline’s reach. As rail services run very frequently, this results in better connection times, which improves the overall customer experience. 

Captain Suleiman Obeidat said: “As part of serving and expanding our network and providing our customers with a unique customer experience related to travel, we believe that partnering with a global distributer for rail companies like AccesRail will enable our customers to reach several new destinations via different railways across Europe and Canada and bus service in the U.S in a convenient way.” 

He added that this partnership demonstrates RJ’s commitment to embrace, at an executive level, air-rail as a major tool in its overall global strategy, and provide passengers with a new travel experience. 

Denis Grenier, VP marketing & business development, AccesRail said: “Royal Jordanian Airline’s vision follows that of other successful air-rail partnerships facilitated by AccesRail, however they are the first to see this potential on a global scale. We are thrilled to work together, making more destinations available thanks to seamless intermodal travel experiences.”
