Qatar Airways to Codeshare with Royal Jordanian

Qatar Airways has further enhanced its ties with oneworld partner Royal Jordanian, through the launch of a new codeshare agreement.

Through the new deal, Qatar Airways passengers travelling between Doha and Amman in Jordan, on both Royal Jordanian and Qatar Airways, will benefit from the same airline code and a streamlined level of service.

Members of the airlines frequent flyer programmes will also be able to collect points on each others flights, with this initial route paving the way for additional codeshare expansions in the near future between the airlines across destinations in the United States and Asia.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, Becoming a member of oneworld has enabled Qatar Airways to strengthen its competitive offering, while expanding travel options to passengers around the world within this leading global alliance network. The launch of this new codeshare agreement with our fellow oneworld member airline, Royal Jordanian, demonstrates this and will allow passengers to benefit from seamless journeys around the globe.

Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 18 years of operations, and is currently flying a fleet of 162 aircraft to more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

Royal Jordanian, the national carrier of Jordan, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013. Eight years ago it became a public shareholding company, with a vision to connect Jordan and the Levant with the world. In 2007, Royal Jordanian was the first Arab carrier to join any of the three global airline alliances.

Royal Jordanian President/CEO Captain Haitham Misto said, Royal Jordanian and Qatar Airways enjoy a strong relationship, and they are both keen on providing superb on-board and on-ground services. This agreement will further enhance the cooperation between our two companies, thus offering our passengers more travel options and frequencies to cities around the world.
