Royal Jordanian to embark on African expansion

The economic growth and increasing propensity to travel in Africa is luring more and more Middle Eastern carriers to add connections to the continent. Now, it’s the turn of Royal Jordanian. The carrier’s President and CEO, Hussein Dabbas, announced recently the carrier is due to launch services from Amman to Nigeria’s capital of Lagos in Nov-2011.

Royal Jordanian expects that the rising incomes, growing middle class and resources boom in Africa will trigger strong traffic to/from the continent.
