Boosting ties to benefit their passengers, Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian have announced an expansion of their current codeshare agreement, which adds six new destinations to Royal Jordanian’s existing network.
Meanwhile, Royal Jordanian will enhance Qatar Airways’ network with the addition of flights from Amman to Doha, bolstering the existing Qatar Airways codeshare on Royal Jordanian operated flights to Doha.
Those travelling with Royal Jordanian will be granted access to more destinations on Qatar Airways’ global network including Dhaka in Bangladesh, Muscat in Oman, Karachi in Pakistan, Colombo in Sri Lanka, Perth in Australia, and Singapore.
In light of this development, 18 weekly flights between Doha and Amman will open up, in addition to numerous new connections on Qatar Airways’ global network from Hamad International Airport.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker noted: “By partnering with Royal Jordanian, we are opening up the world to passengers travelling from Amman through Doha. Our codeshare agreement enables Royal Jordanian to benefit from connectivity to some of our most popular routes, including Perth and Singapore among our more than 150 worldwide destinations. We welcome the partnership with Royal Jordanian, and look forward to seeing our collaboration flourish in the years to come.”
