In light of the spread of coronavirus, the Royal Jordanian (RJ) is suspending its regular flights between Amman and Rome, Italy as of today, February 26, until further notice.

RJ is also planning to cancel a number of flights to the Far East or join some of these flights, as the number of the weekly flights to these countries will be reduced by 50%.

President and CEO of RJ, Stefan Pichler said that such decision is for the safety of passengers, as the number of coronavirus cases is increasing, especially in Italy and some Asian countries.

Pichler explained that the RJ applied all instructions issued by the official Jordanian bodies and international organizations in this regard, noting that it follows up on all developments on corona.

RJ is taking precautionary measures and is ready to apply more measures to keep Jordan free from the virus and keep its crew and employees safe, he confirmed.
