AMMAN – Royal Jordanian honored its best-selling Jordanian travel agents for 2016 at a ceremony held under the sponsorship of Vienna Airport.
Present at the event were RJ President/CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat, Deputy Head of Mission at the Austrian Embassy in Amman Christoph Sternat, Chairman of Jordan Society of Tourism and Travel Agents Shaher Hamdan, RJ’s Chief Commercial Officer Server Aydin, Regional Director/Area Jordan, West Bank and Gaza Osama Quntar and a number of RJ sales personnel.
Captain Obeidat expressed RJ’s appreciation for travel agents’ efforts and their support to the national carrier of Jordan. He said they work hard to increase sales aboard RJ and that the airline is always ready to develop business ties with its partners, in the interest of all parties, and to give a boost to the local tourism and travel industry.
He added that Royal Jordanian constantly improves its air and ground services while modernizing its fleet of aircraft and expands its route network for a better competitive edge.
The airline recently introduced a sixth new Boeing 787 to the fleet, according to the plan of renewing the long- and medium-haul aircraft, to meet the needs of passengers eager to fly on board this state-of-the-art airplane.
Obeidat also expressed gratitude for the cooperation extended to Royal Jordanian by Vienna Airport in sponsoring this event, highlighting the distinguished business relations between the two companies, which make the travel experience of passengers more convenient.
