Two new Airbus aircraft join RJ fleet
Royal Jordanian (RJ) has taken delivery of two new Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
The planes will serve the airline’s long- and medium-range routes to the Far East and London.
RJ President and CEO Hussein Dabbas said the decision to introduce the aircraft was part of the airline’s plan to modernize its fleet and replace the long-serving aircraft with modern planes.
He added that the A330s were acquired because of the delay in the delivery of the 11 Boeing 787 Dreamliners on order.
These will start joining the fleet in 2013, instead of at the beginning of 2011 as planned.
