Flights between Belgrade and Amman begin

Flights between the Serbian capital Belgrade and the Jordanian metropolis Amman will commence after a 16 year absence. The daughter company of the Jordanian national carrier, Royal Jordanian named Royal Wings, will commence once weekly flights between Amman and Belgrade using an Airbus A320-200. The flights depart on Saturday evening (starting August 2) from Amman and will arrive in Belgrade at 05.10AM on Sunday. The flight commences its return journey from Belgrade to Amman at 6.10AM and arrives in the afternoon at its base. The flights will operate from August 2 until September 28. The flights were initially planned to begin on July 13 however the Jordanian company requested for the flights to be moved. There is a possibility if good results are achieved, for the line to become permanent as a Royal Jordanian destination.

Both Jat Airways and Royal Jordanian used to operate flights between Amman and Belgrade before the breakup of Yugoslavia. This summer Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is being served by 19 scheduled airlines including, from the EX-YU, along with Jat, Montenegro Airlines.
