AMMAN — As of Sunday, Royal Jordanian (RJ) is flying three times a week directly to Denmark's capital, Copenhagen. The new route will give RJ a "strong presence in the Scandinavian market and enhance tourism from the Nordic countries to Jordan", an RJ press release said on Sunday.

The new destination is part of RJ’s turnaround plan that includes, among others, continuous assessment of the route network in order to enhance traffic to Jordan and improve connectivity via the base, Amman.

The new route, launched after having conducted a feasibility study, is expected to attract more tourists to Jordan, facilitate travel for businessmen, and enhance trade between Jordan and the Scandinavian market, according to RJ.

Copenhagen Airport is the largest in the Nordic countries and the busiest for international travel; it serves many cities in the Scandinavian Peninsula, particularly southern Sweden.

A delegation of representatives from Royal Jordanian, Jordan Tourism Board and Jordanian travel agents were on the inaugural flight to Copenhagen, according to the statement.
