Royal Jordanian will start operating flights to Misrata starting on Saturday, amid high demand from Libyan passengers for the country's medical tourism sector.
RJ president/CEO Hussein Dabbas said that the company's decision to open a third route between Jordan and Libya was due to high demand from passengers. The airline currently operates flights to Tripoli and Benghazi from its Amman hub.
According to Dabbas, Royal Jordanian will operate two weekly flights to Misrata on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Royal Jordanian resumed its operations to Tripoli with six weekly flights and to Benghazi with four weekly flights after halting services to both cities for 10 months due to the turmoil seen in Libya last year. The airline operates a total of 12 weekly flights between Jordan and Libya with an option of an increase depending on the demand.
