Royal Jordanian and Alitalia have signed a codeshare agreement to offer more travel choices and enhanced network connectivity between Jordan, Italy, and beyond.
For travels beginning on 6 February, the agreement will allow Royal Jordanian (RJ) to expand its offer to Italy by placing its “RJ” flight code on Alitalia’s daily Amman-Rome service, which will resume on 26 March 2017, and on the Italian airline’s connections from Rome to the following 16 domestic destinations: Ancona, Brindisi, Bologna, Bari, Catania, Florence, Genoa, Naples, Palermo, Pisa, Reggio Calabria, Lamezia Terme, Turin, Trieste, Verona and Venice.
Similarly, the agreement will allow Alitalia to widen its Middle East network by placing its “AZ” flight code on Royal Jordanian’s five weekly flights between Rome and Amman and beyond to Aqaba and Larnaca, Cyprus (codeshare on Amman-Larnaca route can be used for travels starting on 8 February). The new codeshare flights are available for sale through the airlines’ websites, their call centers, as well as in travel agencies.
The code share agreement is bound to boost travel and tourism between Jordan and Italy, giving tourists, businessmen and students more travel options with 12 weekly flights between Rome and Amman. Furthermore, travellers from Italy and Jordan will also benefit from a wider range of new destinations to fly to with a single ticket, such as Aqaba for Alitalia’s travellers or Florence, Venice, Naples and Turin for those flying with Royal Jordanian.
Besides the new codeshare services and more convenient flight connections, RJ’s Royal Plus members can earn miles when they fly on a code share flight operated by Alitalia. Also, Alitalia’s MilleMiglia members have the opportunity to earn miles when travelling on codeshare flights operated by Royal Jordanian.
There are 15 codeshare agreements between RJ and regional and international airlines. They are American Airlines, Air Berlin, British Airways, Iberia, Siberia Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Oman Air, Middle East Airlines, Tarom, Gulf Air, Syrian Air and Meridiana Fly Airlines.
