Kiev welcomes another Middle Eastern connection

Kiev welcomes another Middle Eastern connection

Kiev Airport will welcome new flights to the Middle East next month with the arrival of Royal Jordanian Airlines.

The carrier plans to launch two weekly nonstop flights from Kiev to Amman on August 17th.

Samer Majali, president and chief executive of Royal Jordanian, said that the new flights will "service the active commercial movement between the two countries, as well as businessmen, students and tourists, and will stimulate relations between Jordan and Ukraine".

Mr Majali also suggests that the route could pave the way for further flights to Eastern Europe due to the Ukrainian capital’s "strategic position" in the region.

This is the second service connecting Kiev to the Middle East announced so far this week. Air Arabia has said that it will add flights to Kiev from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in October.

The flights are part of an ongoing expansion plan at the airline and are expected to prove popular with both business and leisure travellers flying between Ukraine and the Middle East.
