Royal Jordanian has received a third Airbus A330 aircraft, replacing the two A310 passenger aircraft, slated to be phased out in the near future.

RJ President/CEO Hussein Dabbas said that the decision to introduce the aircraft was part of the airline’s plan to modernise its fleet and replace the longserving aircraft with modern planes. The aircraft – which gives the carrier 15 tonnes of available cargo capacity – is leased on a long term operating lease until January 2017, to cover part of the RJ route network in light of the delay in the delivery of the 11 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which will start joining the fleet in early 2014.
