The airline was established on 9 December 1963 and started operations on 15 December 1963 after a royal decree by the late 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.[citation needed] Alia (the Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
Airline) started operations with two Handley Page Dart Heralds and a Douglas DC-7
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. In 1965, Alia initiated service to Rome, its first destination in 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
Fokker F27 Friendship
airliners. In 1968, the airline expanded its route pattern to Nicosia, Benghazi, Dhahran
Dhahran
and Doha. 1969 saw the addition of service to Munich, Istanbul and Tehran.

In 1970, Alia joined the jet age when they phased out the F27s and ordered 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

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
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).

and nine other Arab air carriers signed up for the Galileo CRS. The IMCS maintenance and engineering system was added, a new Amman
Amman
city air terminal was opened at the 7th Circle
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
Royal Jordanian
became a code-sharing partner with the US carrier Trans World Airlines
Trans World Airlines
and moved operations into the TWA Flight Center (Terminal 5) at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. [3] 2000 and beyond, and privatization[edit] In 2000, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
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
Royal Jordanian Airlines
Company, although travellers still use the popular name of Royal Jordanian. The flag carrier's subsidiary Royal Wings
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
Royal Jordanian
announced that they would replace two Airbus A321s with two new units, and order four new Airbus A319s to enter service in early 2008. In April 2007, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
became part of Oneworld, thus becoming the first Arab airline to join such a global alliance system. The following month, the airline announced an order for a total of 10 Boeing
Boeing
787 Dreamliners, for service entry in 2010. This is the first order Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has placed with Boeing.[4]

in Aqaba. RJ will be the first Middle East airline to provide its passengers with OnAir’s in-flight Internet and mobile phone services, including e-mail, SMS and voice calls.[5] Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has upgraded its three Airbus A310s at a cost of over 10 million Jordanian dinars (JOD). Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
was privatized at the end of 2007, resulting in 71% of its assets being sold. The market capitalization of the company stands at 260 million JOD, and share-trading commenced on 17 December 2007. On 24 December 2007, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
confirmed Baku
Baku
as one of its new destinations for 2008, using an Embraer 195
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
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.[6] The Airbus A319

Royal Jordanian
opened a new route to Kiev, using Embraer 195
Embraer 195
jets for this twice weekly service. On 24 August 2008, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
opened its new lounge at Queen Alia International Airport Amman, replacing the "Petra" and "Jerash" lounges. The new lounge is located on the second floor of the South Terminal and is the second-largest airport lounge in the Middle East, being able to handle over 340 passengers.[8] The airline recorded an 18% increase in passenger numbers in July 2008. With the airline transporting 278,000 passengers, the seat factor grew by 5% in that month to reach 81%.[9] As part of Royal Jordanian's commitment to its airline alliance Oneworld, an announcement was made at the alliance's 10th birthday celebrations on 3 February 2009 that RJ would paint its new A319 (due for delivery in late March) in a scheme that would be based around the Oneworld
Oneworld
name and logo. This is the first special colour scheme Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
will have used.[10] Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
resumed service to Brussels
Brussels
on 1 April 2009, six years after the route was discontinued by the airline, flying twice weekly from Amman
Amman
with the airline planning to add a further two flights per week later in 2009. On 28 March 2010, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
inaugurated regular direct flights to Madinah Munawwarah, Saudi Arabia, with four weekly flights. On the 23 March, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
confirmed that it had ordered two A330-200s and one Embraer 175. Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
recommenced operations to Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur
on June 2, 2010 after it had suspended this route in 2004. Aircraft used on this route is the new Airbus A330-200, and later switched to Boeing
Boeing
787 Dreamliner. In May 2011, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
announced that they will retire the Airbus A310

aircraft in December 2011, and January 2012. Royal Jordanian uses an Airbus A330
Airbus A330
and an Airbus A321
Airbus A321
for non-stop flights to London (Heathrow Terminal 3). [11] In June 2014, Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
announced that it had suspended services to Mosul
Mosul
in northern Iraq
Iraq
due to the capture of the airport by the Islamic State. The first of Royal Jordanian's Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Boeing 787 Dreamliner
aircraft (267-seat, two-class configuration) entered service in September 2014, initially linking Amman
Amman
with Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.[12] The 787 Dreamliner is Royal Jordanian's first Boeing
Boeing
aircraft since the 707s and 747s, and replaced the Airbus A340-200s which had reached the end of their lives. The Dreamliners will also replace the Airbus A330-200s as leases on those aircraft expire. The Dreamliners are generally used on Royal Jordanian's Far East destinations, to London and North America, and occasionally to the United Arab Emirates. Corporate affairs[edit] Head office[edit]

Royal Jordanian's new headquarters in Amman

As of 2009[update] Haddadinco Engineering Company for Contracting is building the new Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
head office in Amman.[13] The building was designed by Niels Torp.[14] 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.[15] Employment[edit] Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has invested heavily in its crew training facility at its headquarters in Amman. As of 2015[update], Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
has employed 4,394 people, according to the most recent annual report. Rivalry[edit] Royal Jordanian
Royal Jordanian
is the second-largest carrier in the Levant[citation needed] 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
Middle East Airlines
and Egypt Air.[16] 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
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. Advertisement campaigns[edit]
