Royal Jordanian receives two new A330s

25-May-2010 9:12 AM

Royal Jordanian (RJ) announced (24-May-2010) the delivery of two new A330-200 aircraft, increasing the carrier's fleet to 33 aircraft. The aircraft will be dedicated to serve the airline's long and medium-range routes to the Far East and London. RJ President and CEO, Hussein Dabbas, stated the aircraft were acquired due to a delay in the delivery of 11 B787s, which are now scheduled to commence delivery in 2013. The B787s were initially scheduled to join the airline in early 2011. Mr Dabbas also stated that RJ concluded its short and medium-haul fleet modernisation programme in 2009, having introduced 19 new aircraft: 12 A320 family aircraft and seven Embraer 195s and 175s. RJ will also acquire a new E-175 in the l4Q2010. By the end of 2010, RJ will start renewing its Airbus A340s operating on long-haul services. [more]
