Emirates Improves NZ Connection With Jordan

Emirates will offer a direct connection to Jordan from New Zealand daily from October 1 when the airline extends its services to the capital, Amman, providing greater access to one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East.

Emirates currently flies from Dubai to Amman each morning and afternoon with the exception of Friday mornings.

From October 1 there will be a14th weekly flight, EK901, which will leave Dubai at 7.25am each Friday and arrive in Amman at 9.20am local time – this means that all four daily Emirates flights from New Zealand will offer a direct connection each day of the week to Jordan. The second daily flight from Dubai to Jordan departs at 2pm.

Tourists flock from far and wide to see attractions such as the magical city of Petra, the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum and the restful Dead Sea.
Jordan has a population of around six million and while Arabic is the main language, English is widely spoken.
