ACC3 EU certified Royal Jordanian now RA3


The ACC3 (Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport) security certification, which came into effect 1 July 2013, defines the standards and security measures implemented to meet EU regulatory requirements. The basic principle of these certifications is to ensure that all cargo or mail flying into the EU is screened or comes from a secure supply chain.

Royal Jordanian VP cargo sales and services Muath Majali said: “Transportation of goods by air has become an essential component of today’s world economy, as air cargo is a particularly important component in the commercial aspect of the aviation industry. Thus, it is essential to remain vigilant and ensure the security and efficiency of operations in this sector.”

Majali added that the attainment of these certifications boosts the airline’s prestigious international status in the area of aviation safety, an issue that has always been at the top of the company’s pyramid of priorities. This reflects the effectiveness of RJ’s operations and the airline’s keenness to apply the highest safety standards.

Royal Jordanian has two A310 dedicated to carrying cargo, each of 35-tonne capacity. It also carries cargo in the holds of its passenger aircrafts. The airline’s cargo route network has 10 destinations: London, Vienna, Athens, Larnaca, Frankfurt and Algeria.
