I believe they use A342's for VIP flights.

Up until late 2000 I know they used an L-1011-500 reg. "JY-HKJ" to transport the royal family. Since then they have replaced it with a used A340-200 reg, "JY-ABH". As well as a Gulfstream III reg. "JY-HZH", all of which operate in RJ colors. I've noticed that they also utilize a Challenger 600 reg, "JY-TWO" in a different livery. (It may be operated by the Jordanian Air Force.)

Regards,
Trent

I wonder what the Challenger and Gulfstream are used for...smaller groups? diplomats?

I know that there is an airplane called the "Falcon of Quraish" that mainly the king uses, and I was interested to know what that was.

As you may know, Jordan is a Hashemite Kingdom, in the sense that its rulers are or at least claim to be descendants of the prophet Mohammad (in Islam). And the prophet, I believe, came from the tribe of Quraish, which at the time (more than 1,400 years ago) was the most powerful, influential and wealthiest tribe in the holy city of Mecca, where Islam originated.
