Search & Book

This deal doesn’t have an expiration date, but a minimum stay of two days and a maximum stay of two months applies. Available dates are between July 2024 and March 2025, except the first six weeks of 2024.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on Royal Jordanian’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

From the airport to the city

You can reach the city centre for about €12 (Oneway) in 28 minutes with the KLIA Express train. A taxi will cost you between €16 and €22 – so if you’re travelling with two or more persons this alternative is worth it!
