Air Arabia Jordan is to operate a new three-times-weekly route from Amman to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia beginning on 14 April 2016.
This will be Air Arabia Jordan’s first expansion in 2016 and Riyadh will be the third Saudi Arabian city to be serviced by the carrier after Dammam and Jeddah.
Flights will take off on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Amman Queen Alia International Airport at 15:45 and arrive at Riyadh King Khalid International Airport at 17:50. In the opposite direction, flights will depart at 18:30 and land in Jordan at 20:15 (all times local).
Air Arabia Jordan began operations in Amman in early 2015. The carrier also flies to Erbil in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, and Kuwait City in Kuwait. This announcement is aligned with its strategy of expanding into the Middle East and Amman becoming a key hub of the Air Arabia Group.
