Some routes maps of MEA and Royal Jordanin show them serving the city, were there any other carriers that flew there.

Yes:

United Arab Airlines (predecessor of Egyptair) had daily service each way Cairo-Jerusalem in 1965 with DC-6B equipment.

Air Liban (later merged with MEA) served Beirut-Jerusalem daily each way with DC-3s in 1955

Arab Airways served Jerusalem to/from Amman/Damascus/Beirut with "Dakota" (C-47 converted to DC-3?) equipment in 1956. Jersusalem was served daily; the routings to/from the aforementioned cities varied by day of the week.

Syrian Arab Airlines had a twice-weekly Damascus-Jerusalem-Damascus turn operated by DC-3s in 1963.

The years indicated are based on issue dates of timetables in which the above information was found.

Wonder what it would be like today if things had remained as they were, very busy I guess.

Quoting 777way (Reply 2):

On that note, I'm sure it is no coincidence that timetables showing service to Jerusalem (JRS) by airlines of Arab/Islamic nations until the mid-1960s can be found, whereas that appears to no longer be true from 1967 and later. When serving JRS during the 1950s-60s were United Arab Airlines and Air Liban required to take circuitous routings from CAI and BEY to avoid overflying Israel?

Speaking of other airlines serving JRS, here's one that reflects post-1967 changes. In the July 2000 OAG, I find Arkia serving JRS from Elat, Haifa and Tel Aviv (SDV rather than TLV) with DH7 and AT7 turboprop types. Arkia is the only airline serving JRS according to this OAG.
