Royal Jordanian Receives Two New Airbus A330’s

Two new airbus A330-200 were delivered to Royal Jordanian last May 25th. The planes will be dedicated to serve the airline’s long- and medium-range routes to the Far East and London. Royal Jordanian President/CEO Hussein Dabbas said that it was a new revolutionary way of introducing the airline to it’s modern changes. He mentioned that the Airbus A330s that join RJ’s 31-plane fleet were acquired because of the delay in the delivery of the 11 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which will start joining the fleet in 2013. The B787s were scheduled to join the airline at the beginning of 2011.

Dabbas also pointed out that last year Royal Jordanian concluded its short- and medium-haul fleet modernization program, having introduced 19 newly manufactured aircraft: 12 Airbus aircraft of the A320 family, and seven Embraer 195 and 175. Royal Jordanian will also acquire a new Embraer 175 in the last quarter of this year. By the end of 2010, RJ will start renewing its Airbus A340s operating on long flights.

“The new A330’s will be luxurious” Hussein Dabbas said as he wants comfort for his passengers and he said that “ All Crown and Economy seats each passenger can watch there favorite program on a personal in-seat screen.”

The first flight of these aircraft will depart for London on June 1 and the second will depart the next day for Kuala Lumpur , thus resuming a three-weekly service to the Malaysian capital.
