Royal Jordanian expands east

ROYAL JORDANIAN, a member of oneworld, has acquired a pair of Airbus A330s to serve the growing number of flights to Far East destinations and the London route.  RJ President/CEO Hussein Dabbas (a guest of the Aviation Club in London on 28 April) said that the introduction of the two Airbus A330s is to cover a shortfall due to delivery delays of the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners, not now due to start until 2013.  Flights will be resumed to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur at the beginning of June this year, in light of the signs of recovery and increase in tourism and commercial activity to Malaysia.  The three weekly services to Kuala Lumpur will be operated via Bangkok.  The new aircraft will also be flown four times a week to Hong Kong via Bangkok, three times a week to Colombo and daily to London. www.rj.com
