On this occasion, Ahmad Al-Barahim, chief customer and commercial officer, assured during his speech at the ceremony that he was pleased to add Amman to the airline’s growing network, which today reaches 24 domestic and international destinations, noting that this step comes within the framework of the strategy implemented by the company for the next five years, by working to double the number and its increase to 50 local and international destinations, as well as the search for new and promising markets appropriate to the nature of the company's business model and suitable for its air fleet.
Al-Brahim explained that the new low cost flights will in turn contribute to increasing travel and strengthening the bonds of cooperation between the two sister kingdoms, explaining that the company's decision to operate its first international flights to Amman comes in response to the increasing demand from travelers on low cost flights locally and internationally, in addition to that Amman is one of the distinguished destinations in the Arab world.
