EasyJet will double capacity on its Gatwick-Aqaba route this winter.
The service, launched in August last year, will expand to twice-weekly, starting 29 October.
Jordan subsequently reported record British tourist numbers last August, up 21% year-on-year, according to the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and Jordan Tourism Board.
Flights to Aqaba on the Red Sea have opened up south Jordan as a popular winter sun option, offering a wide variety of activities, tours and experiences including snorkelling and scuba diving, that have taken pressure off the country’s most famous tourism sites like Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea, which remain in striking distance.
It is also near capital Amman too, which has been transformed with multi billion-dollar investment in the new resorts of Ayla and Saraya Aqaba.
EasyJet’s now twice-weekly service will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays through 28 March 2020. Fares lead in from £29.99 one way.
