Royal Jordanian begins Sarajevo codeshare flights

NEWS FLASH


Royal Jordanian Airlines and Turkish Airlines have expanded their codeshare agreement to include Sarajevo. As a result, Royal Jordanian passengers will be able to travel with easier connections and more flexible alternatives with one ticket and one single check-in at Amman Airport to Sarajevo via Istanbul. President and CEO of Royal Jordanian Airlines, Stefan Pichler, said, "Codeshare agreements with global airlines are in line with Royal Jordanina's turnaround plan and endeavour to offer an improved passenger experience and enhance competitiveness at regional and global levels". He added that the expansion of the codeshare agreement with Turkish Airlines, which has been in place since 2015, enables the carrier's passengers to fly to their desired destination more easily and conveniently. Carriers from the Middle East are competing to cater for the growing demand between the region and Sarajevo. A number of carriers from the Gulf have announced plans to significantly increase their operations to the Bosnian capital this year.

  2. I recall Royal Jordanian bidding for B&H Airlines' 49% stake takeower in 2007 if I'm not mistaken. They lost to Turkish Airlines.

    2. Nije to bio Royal Jordanian nego nesto slicno (mislim da je Jordan aviation). Ista firma je pokusala nesto napraviti i u Mostaru i letove i neki hangar ali nista od toga. Znaju Mostarci najbolje ko je to bio.

    3. Bio je bas RJ

      Turkish was picked as the best bidder in an auction for BH Airlines in October. Malaysia's Comintel Corp (CMNL.KL) and a Jordanian consortium that included Royal Jordanian Airline RJAL.AM were among firms that made binding bids for the stake in the company.

    4. Exactly it was Royal Jordanian. I'm pretty sure things would've worked out the same as with Turkish because of the corrupt and uncapable government.

    5. Slazem se sa ovim Jordan aviation.Iako svuda pise da je bio Royal Jordanian, ipak je to bio Jordan Aviation i to negdje krajem 2007 ili pocetkom 2008. Kada nisu uspjeli sa BHA jer ni oni nisu jaki (imali su nekoliko aviona i poslali su delegaciju od dva clana u Sarajevo s tim da je zenska bila glavna)poikusali su pregovarati sa aerodromom Mostar o nekim linijama i otvaranju nekakve stanice sa hangarom u Ortjesu. Na zalost, ni to nije proslo.
