Queen Alia International Airport

Queen Alia International Airport is Jordan’s chief international airport, sited 18 miles south of the capital, Amman, and providing easy access to Amman’s wide variety of hotels, hostels, B&Bs and other accommodation. Built in 1983 and given a major overhaul with a brand new terminal in 2013, Queen Alia is home to the national carrier, Royal Jordanian Airlines. British Airways operates flights from London Heathrow, and other routes are run from European cities including Paris, Frankfurt, Rome, Vienna and Athens. There is a wide choice of connections to Middle Eastern countries, while Royal Jordanian operates long-haul routes to Chicago, New York and Hong Kong, among others.

Why Fly to Jordan

Jordan is one of the most welcoming lands in the Middle East, a vibrant mix of classic desert landscapes and spectacular water attractions, ancient architecture and Christian and Islamic traditions. It’s also a modern country with an excellent hotel and tourism infrastructure, which offers a genuinely warm welcome to its visitors. Jordan welcomes every kind of visitor, from business travellers to family groups, from those seeking a short city break in Amman to those looking for thrills and spills in the Red Sea. Its accommodation options range from excellent-value budget and mid-range places to stay to truly luxurious five-star and boutique hotels, often close to the great attractions and offering unforgettable views from your room or balcony. And you won’t go hungry in Jordan, for every hotel offers an excellent choice of international and local Jordanian cuisine – try mansaf, the national dish of meat, rice and dried yoghurt, and desserts such as knafeh, baklava and halva.

Jordan – a Land of Classic Desert Adventure

Any visitor to the Middle East seeks an authentic desert experience, and Jordan does not disappoint, for it offers some of the finest desert adventures in the region. If you’re a Lawrence of Arabia fan then you should head south to Wadi Rum – where some of the most memorable scenes in the movie were filmed – a spectacular vista of towering crags and orange-red sands, where you can try your hand at camel trekking and even spend the night in an authentic Bedouin tent. Nearby lies Petra, the spectacular city carved from the red rocks, with architectural wonders springing out at you from every canyon turn, and which you can explore on foot or by hiring a horse and cart. Nearby Little Petra is less crowded, and great for younger visitors to explore.
