Ryanair has announced its very first direct flight from Malta to a non-European country will begin in April, opening up doors for Maltese travellers to see a whole new continent.
Amman, the capital city of Jordan, is set to be Ryanair’s first out-of-Europe destination for Maltese travellers
The announcement was made during a meeting of Malta Tourism Authority representatives, Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi, and Ryanair Chief Commercial Officer David O’Brien.
“Ryanair is pleased to announce a brand new route from Malta to Amman, Jordan starting in April 2019, which will operate twice-weekly as part of our our biggest ever Malta Summer 2019 schedule, which now includes 62 routes in total,” said Mr O’Brien.

Dr Konrad Mizzi said the debut of the Jordan route further strengthened the Maltese government’s vision of connecting Malta to new routes
“Ryanair’s new announcement demonstrates its commitment towards the Maltese islands, shortly after it invested €100M to base its sixth aircraft in Malta,” said Dr. Mizzi. “This new route from Malta to Amman is estimated to bring around 11,200 inbound visitors to our islands during the Summer months.”
Ryanair are also launching an insane two-day sale at €14.99 per flight
“To celebrate, we are releasing seats for sale on these routes from just €14.99, for travel in January 2019, which are only available for booking until midnight Thursday, 8th November. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out,” said Mr O’Brien.
Amman is considered one of the most modern and liberal major Arab cities
With a population of just over four million people, and situated in north-central Jordan, the cosmopolitan city is considered the cultural, economic, and political centre of Jordan.
It is a popular tourist destination due to a number of reasons
Apart from the spectacular sites scattered around the city that go back centuries, Amman is the perfect starting point for a well-organised trip around the Middle East since it borders four countries: Syria, Israel, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.
