Next Friday, King Abdullah and Queen Rania will be touring Latin America and Central America on official visits with each head of state. This visit will be Madrid-Chile-Argentina-Brazil-Costa Rica-Honduras-Cuba.
Their VIP A342 is for sale in Germany, JY-ABH pending the arrival of the new VIP A346 which was seen during test flights in TLS a couple of months ago. Since they fly as RJA1, these flights are caught by flight trackers and their last visit to the US in July was performed with an A319CJ, HB-IPO, operated by Comlux Aviation.
According to some spotter friends in Chile, they are travelling on a 747 but of course this could be wrong. The purpose of this post is to determine which aircraft they will be using and hopefully someone will spot it soon as their tour begins in Madrid this Sunday.

The King certainly learned well from his late Father King Hussein who had an L-1011-500 in Royal Jordanian livery with the titles, " The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan". King Abdullah is a great face for Jordan and the Arab world, Princess Raina help too, who would want to meet such a beautiful woman.

Quoting LEEDS19 (Reply 1): One of the UAE gvmt B747-400s A6-HRM left Dubai a few days ago on an RJ four digit flt Number,This had me wondering at the time but I forgot about it until I read this. Highly likely to be this.
That makes a lot of sense taking the fact it left with an RJA flight number, it was just a few days ago and the Chilean spotters are saying its a 747 so I REALLY hope it is this one, it will be a feast for Costa Rican spotters!
Quoting SR100 (Reply 3): Impressing program for only one Friday...
Hehe I mean that they start their tour this Sunday and they arrive to Costa Rica until Friday but that is the list of countries they will be visiting next week.
