Will there be direct air communication between Armenia and Jordan?

Will there be direct air communication between Armenia and Jordan?

ArmInfo. It is planned to establish direct air communication between Armenia and Jordan. At the February 13 meeting, the RA National Assembly ratified the agreement  between the Government of the Republic of Armenia and the Government  of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on air traffic.

According to the Chairperson of the Civil Aviation Committee of the  Republic of Armenia Tatevik Revazyan, the agreement was signed on  November 1, 2018 in Aman. The document provides for equal rights for  air carriers of the two countries, while liberalizing issues such as  the appointment by the parties of their air carriers, price  regulation, frequency of flights, and service destinations. At the  same time, the parties commit themselves to ensuring the safety of  air transportation, ensuring equal competitive conditions. The Head  of the Committee emphasized that the ratification of the agreement  would enhance bilateral relations, increase tourism flow and  positively affect the country's economy.

At the same time, she admitted that at this stage, airlines operating  in Jordan and Armenia have no interest in organizing direct flights  between the two countries to increase tourist flow, however, this  does not mean that this issue does not need to be regulated. "Today,  new directions began to develop very quickly, and it turned out that  there were countries with which we did not have any agreements at  all, and this would create obstacles if we did not resolve this  situation," Tatevik Revazyan added. She found it difficult to say  whether it is possible in principle to organize flights to Jordan,  since, as she admitted, today there are many different kinds of  obstacles, including visa ones, however, through transit, with  certain restrictions, it is possible. The head of the Committee also  said that similar agreements are currently in effect with 49  countries, and the next step is to conclude an agreement with the  European Union.
