RJ takes Petra to the skies on its 787

Royal Jordanian’s 787 with Petra livery

Royal Jordanian, the Kingdom’s national carrier, has placed Petra-inspired livery on one of its wide-bodied Boeing 787 aircraft, as it takes on a stronger role in promoting Jordan as a destination open to tourists. The project was implemented in cooperation with Jordan Tourism Board to promote the red-rose city of Petra, which is a unique landmark in Jordan and has become an attractive destination for tourists of different nationalities and cultures.

The unveiling of the livery design was attended by HRH Dana Firas, President of Petra National Trust and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Cultural Heritage; RJ Chairman of the Board Said Darwazeh; RJ Vice Chairman/CEO Samer Majali; Jordan Tourism Board members, QAIA, RJ officials and media. 

“Since its establishment, 58 years ago, RJ has assumed the responsibility of promoting Jordan's tourism at home and abroad. RJ feels it is its duty, as a national carrier, to act as a bridge that connects Jordan to the world, and thus it has become the roving ambassador of Jordan,” RJ Vice Chairman/CEO Samer Majali said.

Royal Jordanian has also announced improvements to its meal service, adding to its economy class menu. These improvements include international, Oriental, Mexican and Italian food presented to economy class passengers. The meals change every two weeks and according to the destination.

Majali said that the improved menu came in response to passengers’ demands and recommendations sent to Royal Jordanian through different channels. The airline, in cooperation with Dnata catering services, was keen to meet these demands, thus further contributing to offering passengers a unique and seamless travel experience.

He added that RJ will continue to serve a diversity of hot meals to the Crown Class passengers on all its routes.
