How did one of the safest airlines in the world begin? Humbly, despite with a royal decree – with only a handful of propeller aircraft operating routes in the Middle East during the 1960s. Much has changed since, considering that Royal Jordanian's fleet is thoroughly modernized, featuring Boeing Dreamliners fitted with spacious seats, personal screens and an international menu. Business – or Crown – class seats are even fitted with power outlets and can be laid completely flat for sleeping.The airline's base in Amman is perfect for originating flights as far as China, Kenya and Canada, and indeed Royal Jordanian flies to over 60 destinations covering much of the northern hemisphere. As with all modern airlines, Royal Jordanian rewards frequents with the Royal+ loyalty program, allowing you to earn miles every time you fly. Miles can be applied for membership upgrades, unlocking privileges that include lounge access and extra baggage, or used for free tickets or seat upgrades.
