Jordan is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East and amongst the airline’s earliest routes, launching in 1986.
In 2013, total trade between the UAE and Jordan exceeded US$1 billion, according to statistics published by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Tourism represents approximately 10 per cent of Jordan’s GDP.
With the three daily flights, Emirates SkyCargo says the main commodities to be exported from Amman include fruits, vegetables, pharmaceuticals, clothing and electronics. Goods being imported include seafood, meat, pharmaceuticals and automotive spare parts.
