The country’s Civil Aviation Authority signed the eight-year deal with Royal Jordanian in 2002
Jordan’s Civil Aviation Authority has cancelled the exclusive right of the country’s airline Royal Jordanian to operate regular flights to and from the kingdom.
The Civil Aviation Authority signed an eight-year deal with the carrier in 2002 which meant that other Jordanian airline companies would only be allowed to operate charter flights during the exclusivity period.
The deal was aimed at allowing Royal Jordanian to boost its financial performance and its privatisation plans, according to Petra’s news agency.
The Royal Wings and the Royal Falcons are the only firms licensed to operate scheduled flights in Jordan.
