The flight arrived at King Hussain International Airport, carrying 141 passengers from Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), according to the Economic Affairs Commissioner in the Aqaba Regional Authority, Shurhabeel Madi.

The Airport witnessed preparations for welcoming visitors, most notable of which are temperature check-ups, social distancing floor stickers, sanitation equipment for passengers and their luggage.
