After 6 years RJ is resuming AMM-BRU flights.


RJ to resume service to Brussels in April
24/09/2008

Royal Jordanian announced that it will resume flights between Amman and the Belgian capital, Brussels, starting April 1, 2009.

RJ President/CEO Samer Majali said that the scheduled direct service to Brussels has been resumed for commercial reasons, following studies of the Belgian market, which indicated that it is feasible to reconnect Jordan and Belgium.

Majali said the open skies policy signed by the two countries on July 29, 2008, grants Jordan the 3rd and 4th freedom rights to operate between Amman and Brussels directly and with unlimited frequencies.

He added that the airline will serve this route twice weekly, on Saturdays and Wednesdays, using the Airbus A319s, recently added to the fleet. Majali stressed that the route is bound to stimulate relations between Jordan and Belgium and facilitate transportation of businessmen and goods, and serve the Jordanian and Arab communities residing in Belgium. Additionally, it will boost tourism in both countries.

Congrats to RJ. Although a twice weekly service is hardly a stimulant for business traffic!

Any news when RJ will resume Ankara ESB again. It has been 3 years they suspended AMM ESB and the last time they disclosed that they were expecting smaller planes to reinstatet the route.

Now we just have to wait and see when SN will start codesharing with them too.

On the other hand, maybe they never will since they (SN) will depend on LH.

I'm glad to see a (re)new-ed offer to the Levant, but why in the hell did they decide to operate on the exact same days as RB! Sure a mid-week and a weekend are nice to begin with, but then why no Thursday and Sunday.

Anyway, I think it's a bit late to hope SN will code-share on the service as their future indeed lies with LH and Star Alliance. But this will increase the profile of oneworld at BRU a little more.

Wonder if it will be nonstop or if it will have stops en-route like it did before at e.g. VIE. What do 3rd and 4th freedoms entitle them do? could they do an AMM-BEY-BRU and sell BEY-BRU only?

RJ will receive a new A319 in october and another two first Q 2009, by then they will have 4 of the type which will give them more flexibility in adding new routes and increasing frequencies specialy to EU.

Quoting Ronerone (Reply 1):

A twice-weekly service in this day and age seems like a waste of time. Business travellers want frequency and will avoid a carrier that doesn't have close to daily service. In my opinioin RJ would be smarter to add those two flights to one of their other destinations in Europe with less than daily service to give them a strong presence in the market. For example, I believe they are currently only 5 x week to FRA, 3 x week to ZRH and 2 x week to GVA. Spreading themselves so thinly to so many destinations seems like a poor market strategy.

On the other hand, TK has several destinations in Europe where they fly only a few times a week, and it works out fine for them. Maybe same will go for RJ.

RJ may not have the right to fly more than this to these destinations under current bilateral agreements.

Sadly I've seen the schedule on another site and it will allow connecting to BEY on Wed only as the Sat flights reaches AMM after the last flight to BEY (9:15p). So for us RJ will be an option in the Summer holiday only but not at Carnival, Easter, All Saints and Christmas/New Year school holidays so far.

RJ106 BRU1430 - 1900AMM 319 3
RJ106 BRU1645 - 2215AMM 319 6

I'm not sure the business market is their main target anyway. maybe the belgian leisure market?

BRU now has all the airlines of the Levant region serving it, expect a notable one!

CY do LCA (not Levant but not far really), LY and SN do TLV, RB does ALP, BEY & DAM, and now RJ is back on AMM.

Only ME does not resume its BEY-BRU route or SN open the BRU-BEY route once a key stop on the Sabena network, even reintroduced in the mid 90's. Please Mohamed El-Hout see the potential and stop the plot of stuffing us on the dreadful combination of TGV + CDG wih AF.
