    Armenian tourists to start weekly visits to Jordan early September: JTB

    June 1, 2021

    Amman, May 31 (Petra) -- The Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) has signed a charter flight support agreement that includes attracting Armenian tourist delegations to the Kingdom in September.

    In the presence of JTB Managing Director Abdul Razzaq Arabiat, the agreement was signed by the General Manager of the Armenian Tourism Company, Areva Travel and Tourism Group, Herbyslim Stamobyan, the General Manager of Travco Tourism and Travel Paolo Nocherino, and the CEO of Dallas Travel and Tourism, Amjad Maslamani.

    Arabiat said that the agreement included the support of the JTB for charter flights to the Kingdom through the Armenian company, indicating that the agreement will help activate the tourism movement from Armenia as of September to Jordan, with a weekly flight through Jordanian airlines 'Fly Jordan'.

    He added that the JTB followed a policy of support by attracting chartered flights after the government exempted the departure tax on chartered, regular and low-cost flights at King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba Special Economic City.

    Arabiyat indicated that the JTB is working hard to attract aircraft from other countries, noting that the JTB has an integrated strategy to support low-cost chartered aircrafts.

    For his part, General Manager of the Travco Company Paolo Nocherino said, 'Our hard work with a real effort on our part and with the support of Fly Jordan Aviation and the JTB through the incentives and direct support program launched by the board, contributed to the return of air traffic to the Kingdom.'

    He stressed that the company is keen on the return of tourist groups to Jordan, as the company is working with its full capacity to provide a distinguished tourism service for these arriving groups.

    Fly Jordan CEO, Amjad Maslamani, stressed the importance of this agreement, which would contribute to re-attracting more flights to the Kingdom after the long period of suspension of air traffic due to Covid-19 restrictions.

    He said that Fly Jordan is the first Jordanian airline to sign a tourist transport agreement with the Armenian company, which includes transporting tourists to the Kingdom to visit all tourist and archaeological sites, pointing out that the agreement will support tourism forward, and contribute to reactivating the tourism movement.
