Royal Wings – the subsidiary of Royal Jordanian – is to launch direct flights between King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba on the Jordanian coast and Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai South starting on Thursday 15 June.


Royal Wings is transferring its operations from Amman to Aqaba to boost air transportation and tourism in the port city.
This new Dubai service will be run twice weekly – Sundays and Thursdays – at a first stage, with competitive ticket fares to facilitate the movement of passengers between Aqaba, an important tourist and economic destination on the shores of the Red Sea, and Dubai, a vital and pivotal business centre.
With this new flight, investors and tourists will be able to visit Aqaba, Petra and Wadi Rum, enjoy Jordanian tourist sites and its moderate weather.
Royal Wings Managing Director Osama Quntar said: “Royal Wings operates this route in cooperation with the Jordan Tourism Board, which continuously seeks to promote Jordan to the world, especially in the Arab Gulf countries, whose citizens consider Jordan an attractive destination for family tourism in terms of entertainment, culture, health and medical and eco tourism.”
This new service to Dubai comes after it launched direct regular flights to Beirut and Cairo.
The company also aims to operate to new markets like London, Milan, Moscow, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Stockholm and others, according to its 2017- 2018 operational plan.
The flights depart at 8:35 from Aqaba and arrives at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai at 12:25; it takes off from Dubai at 13:10 and arrives in Aqaba at 15:15.
