in 1971

The airline was established on 9 December 1963 and started operations on 15 December 1963 after a royal decree by the late King Hussein
King Hussein
. It was named Alia (or Aalya) after King Hussein's eldest child, Princess Alia bint Al Hussein of Jordan
Jordan
(born on 13 February 1956). It is a common misconception that the airline was named after the King's third wife, Queen Alia whom King Hussein
King Hussein
did not marry until 1972. The airline was founded with capital from private shareholders but the Jordanian government later took over the company.

Alia (the Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
Airline) started operations with two Handley Page Dart Heralds and a Douglas DC-7 aircraft, serving Kuwait City , Beirut
Beirut
and Cairo
Cairo
from Amman. In 1964, another DC-7 was added and service began to Jeddah
Jeddah
. In 1965, Alia initiated service to Rome , its first destination in Europe
Europe
. The progress made by the airline was threatened by an Israeli air raid during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War when the DC-7 aircraft were destroyed. They were replaced by two Fokker F27 Friendship

airliners.

In 1968, the airline expanded its route pattern to Nicosia

In 1970, Alia joined the jet age when they phased out the F27s and ordered Boeing 707
Boeing 707
aircraft. Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi were added to the network. The 707s were delivered in 1971. In that year, service was initiated to Madrid, Copenhagen and Karachi. During the rest of the decade, Boeing
Boeing
720s , Boeing
Boeing
727s , and Boeing

747s were added to the fleet. A catering department was established, and duty-free shops were opened at Amman

airport. Services were added to destinations including: Bahrain, Dubai, Muscat, Rabat, Geneva, Amsterdam, Baghdad, Bangkok, Vienna, Damascus, New York City, Houston and Ras al-Khaimah. In 1979, Alia became a founding member of the Arab Airlines Technical Consortium (AATC).

In the 1980s, Tunis and Tripoli joined the route map, and Alia's IBM computer center was inaugurated. Lockheed L-1011 Tristars , Airbus A310s and Airbus A320s joined the fleet. In 1986, Alia changed its name to Royal Jordanian. The airline's first woman pilot flew one of their aircraft during this decade. Service was added to Belgrade, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Bucharest, Singapore, Riyadh, Kuala Lumpur – in cooperation with MAS , Sana'a, Moscow, Montreal, Delhi, Calcutta and Ankara. This decade also saw the introduction of the Gabriel Automated Ticket System – (GATS). A Boeing

city air terminal was opened at the 7th Circle of the Jordanian capital, and services to Rafah started, since then halted. The cities of Toronto, Colombo, Jakarta, Berlin, Mumbai, Milan and Tel Aviv were added to the network. In November, 1997 Royal Jordanian

became a code-sharing partner with the US carrier Trans World Airlines

and moved operations into the TWA Flight Center (Terminal 5) at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

2000 AND BEYOND, AND PRIVATIZATION

In 2000, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) renewed the airline's maintenance and engineering department's license. The duty-free shop was among the services to be privatised. A holding company, RJI, wholly owned by the government, was incorporated as a public limited company in February 2001 to hold all the airline's and associated investments. The airline's name was changed on 5 February 2001 to Alia – The Royal Jordanian Airlines Company, although travellers still use the popular name of Royal Jordanian.

On 10 February 2006, the flag carrier 's subsidiary Royal Wings started its first domestic service to Aqaba, the seaport on the Gulf of Aqaba, using a Fokker F27. Royal Wings now operates an Airbus A320-212 aircraft on both scheduled and charter services to destinations in Egypt, Cyprus and Israel.

On 20 December 2006, Royal Jordanian

confirmed Baku

as one of its new destinations for 2008, using an Embraer 195 twice weekly from Amman. In early 2008, however, RJ officials decided against the new route, citing that high fuel prices and a new market were a risk too large to take at that time. Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
plans to operate the Amman-Baku route in late 2009 or early 2010. On 22 January 2008, RJ launched flights to Hong Kong

via Bangkok, with three flights/week during winter, and five flights/week during summer, making it the airline's first route to China

Royal Jordanian
head office in Amman. The building was designed by Niels Torp . The new building was completed in late 2011, and RJ employees began work in the building on January 3, 2012. In the 1960s Alia's head office was in the Mango Building in Amman.

EMPLOYMENT

Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has invested heavily in its crew training facility at its headquarters in Amman. As of 2015 , Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has employed 4,394 people, according to the most recent annual report.

RIVALRY

Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
is the second-largest carrier in the Levant and the only major Arab carrier serving Israel. It began to put into place a new strategy at the end of 2002 which saw the airline concentrate on its neighboring nations, with increased frequencies. In a plan to establish itself as the Middle East's "regional airline" it began to add smaller routes such as Alexandria in Egypt to Aleppo in Syria which the bigger airlines, such as Emirates , would not undertake with the larger aircraft compared to Royal Jordanian's regional jets. As of the end of 2008, the plan had proven successful for the airline, with its main rivals being Middle East Airlines and Egypt Air
Egypt Air
.

Since 2008 Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has faced increased competition within the Middle East. The arrival of many new low cost airlines such as Air Arabia , Jazeera Airways and flydubai have caused problems for the Jordanian airline. With the arrival of these new airlines Royal Jordanian has focused upon improving its onboard and ground services in order to retain market share.
