On Tuesday Hasan Ali, General director of the Jordan Airlines, stated that the Jordan Airlines company resumed its flights to Moscow which were suspended for three years. He reported that for the time being the airline would perform one flight a week but already in the nearest future he did not exclude the possibility of making several weekly flights to the Russian capital. Ali attributes this to the growth of passenger traffic between Moscow and Amman. Until recently only Aeroflot aircraft were flying the Moscow-Amman route (once a week).
