Royal Jordanian and Alitalia sign codeshare deal
Royal Jordanian and Alitalia airlines have signed a codeshare agreement to offer more travel choices and enhanced network connectivity between Jordan, Italy, and beyond.
The agreement is expected to boost travel and tourism between Jordan and Italy, giving tourists, business travellers and students more travel options with 12 weekly flights between Rome and Amman.
In addition, travellers from Italy and Jordan will also benefit from a wider range of new destinations to fly to with a single ticket, such as Aqaba for Alitalia’s travellers or Florence, Venice, Naples and Turin for those flying with Royal Jordanian.
The codeshare agreement will allow Royal Jordanian to expand its offer to Italy by placing its ‘RJ’ flight code on Alitalia’s daily Amman-Rome service, which will resume on 26 March 2017, and on the Italian airline’s connections from Rome to 16 domestic destinations – Ancona, Brindisi, Bologna, Bari, Catania, Florence, Genoa, Naples, Palermo, Pisa, Reggio Calabria, Lamezia Terme, Turin, Trieste, Verona and Venice.
Similarly, the agreement will allow Alitalia to widen its Middle East network by placing its ‘AZ’ flight code on Royal Jordanian’s five weekly flights between Rome and Amman and beyond to Aqaba and Larnaca, Cyprus.
Royal Jordanian has codeshare agreements with a range of regional and international airlines, including American Airlines, Air Berlin, British Airways, Iberia, Siberia Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Oman Air, Middle East Airlines, Tarom, Gulf Air, Syrian Air and Meridiana Fly Airlines.
