This is the first Dreamliner in the airline’s fleet. AerCap will deliver two more 787-8s on lease to Royal Jordanian later this year.
“We are delighted to receive our first 787 which will not only revolutionize the inflight experience for our passengers but also help Royal Jordanian increase its competitiveness both regionally and internationally,” said Royal Jordanian Chairman of the Board, President and CEO Nasser Lozi.
“As the largest customer of the 787 program in the world, we are proud to celebrate this important delivery to Royal Jordanian,” said Aengus Kelly, CEO of AerCap. “This airplane is a perfect complement to Royal Jordanian’s fleet.”
Royal Jordanian currently has a network of over 50 global destinations, and plans to deploy the Dreamliner on services to North American destinations as well as to Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
