Emirates will add a third daily flight to Jordan from 1 August 2014, representing a further ramping up of services to Amman after Emirates flights to Jordan went double daily in October 2012.

This is a direct response to very healthy demand for our services, said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Centre. With a triple daily service, we will be able to provide even greater convenience to passengers flying to and from Jordan and throughout the rest of our network.

The new EK 905 will depart Dubai at 21:55 and arrive in Amman at 23:59. The return flight, EK 906, will depart at 03:45 and touch down in Dubai at 07:45. A combination of Boeing 777 and Airbus A330-200 aircraft will be used, as with the existing operation.

Flying with Emirates means having a selection of up to 1,700 channels of movies, TV programmes, games and music to enjoy during the flight. Cabin crew from around the world are on hand to look after customers, serving gourmet-chef prepared food along the way.

Jordan is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East and amongst the airlines earliest routes, launching in 1986. In 2011, Emirates marked 25 years of service to Amman.

Tourists come from far and wide to see Jordans world-renowned attractions such as Petra and the Dead Sea.

In 2013, total trade between the UAE and Jordan exceeded US$ 1 billion, according to statistics published by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Tourism represents approximately 10% of Jordans GDP.

With the three daily flights from August, Emirates SkyCargo will be able to further support international trade opportunities making use of the cargo deck of aircraft.

The main commodities being exported include fruits, vegetables, pharmaceuticals, clothing and electronics. Goods being imported include seafood, meat, pharmaceuticals and automotive spare parts.
