Health Alert – Commercial Flight Options to the United States (Mar. 23, 2020)

Location:  Jordan

Event:  Effective March 16, at 11:59 pm, Queen Alia Airport in Amman closed for passenger flights until further notice.  However, the following airlines are striving to provide limited flights out of Jordan for U.S. citizens:

  • Royal Jordanian Airlines: Amman to U.S. on March 27 at 12:00 PM (noon).  
  • Qatar Airlines: Amman to Doha to U.S. on March 27 at 1:00 AM.   

Travelers must purchase tickets on these flights directly through the AlWoujdan travel agency.  Those wishing to purchase tickets should fill out a travel request form by 10:00 a.m. on March 25.  The travel agency will then contact travelers on a first-come, first-served basis by March 26 to discuss the travel request.

Ticket pricing is set by the airlines and will be communicated at the time of booking. The tickets are estimated to cost between $1800 and $2300 per one-way ticket to the U.S. (for Royal Jordanian) and Doha (for Qatar Airways).  The travel agency will only be able to make flight reservations for first point of entry to the U.S. Onward flights within the U.S. must be purchased separately by the traveler.  

Information about transportation to Queen Alia International Airport will be provided to ticket holders at a later time.  Ticket holders must be prepared to secure their own transportation to the airport. Ticket holders also must be prepared to be medically screened prior to boarding any flight.
