AMMAN - Royal Jordanian (RJ) on Monday announced the addition of five new destinations to its network in an expansion of its code-share agreement with Qatar Airways.
"In joining forces with Qatar Airways, we are able to extend our customer experience beyond our existing destination network, to include several new destinations around the world," said RJ President Captain Suleiman Obeidat, according to a statement by the airline.
RJ customers will have access to Dhaka in Bangladesh, Muscat in Oman, Karachi in Pakistan, Colombo in Sri Lanka, Perth in Australia, and Singapore, subject to regulatory approvals, the statement said.
The expansion will also open up 18 weekly flights between Doha and Amman, the airline added.
Qatar Airways said its partnership with RJ opened up the world to passengers travelling from Amman through Doha.
"Our code-share agreement enables Royal Jordanian to benefit from connectivity to some of our most popular routes, including Perth and Singapore amongst our more than 150 worldwide destinations," said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group chief executive.
"We welcome the partnership with Royal Jordanian, and look forward to seeing our collaboration flourish in the years to come," Al Baker said, according to the RJ statement.
Qatar Airways and RJ launched the code share agreement in August 2015.
