Qatar Airways has opened an office in Amman,
The building, which has six floors,
is located in Amman’s Shmeisani district, widely considered the
principal financial and business district of the capital city.
In addition to the airline’s
offices, the property offers for rent 24 offices and
showrooms, with underground parking, 24/7 security,
and on-site management services. The
building spans nearly 2,000 square metres of land and over 11,000
square metres of built up area.
His Excellency Eng. Anmar
Khasawneh hailed the opening of Qatar Airways’ new offices in
Amman as the first Qatari owned investment in The Kingdom of
Jordan and expressed his hopes that it would spur a series of
Qatari investments within the country.
Qatar Airways Group
Chief Executive, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker, said, “Jordan
is an integral market for Qatar Airways, where we operate three
daily flights to Amman using wide-body aircraft, including the
state-of-the-art Airbus A350. The opening of our new offices in
the Kingdom comes as a response to the growing demand for quality
flights, in addition to serving as further confirmation that Qatar
Airways has become the airline of choice for discerning travellers
from Jordan. We are looking forward to further enhancing our
offerings and services in Jordan and are certain that the launch
of our new offices will help us achieve our goal."
Airways launched its first flight to Amman in 1994. Since then,
Amman has consistently been one of the airline’s primary
destinations, with 21 weekly flights from Doha. The airline group
also employs more than 400 Jordanians.
Qatar Airways entered into a codeshare
agreement with Royal Jordanian Airlines in 2015, allowing both
airlines to reach various additional destinations around the
world. The agreement recently expanded to allow passengers to fly
to East Asia through Hamad International Airport.
