Yes, the Royal Jordanian Airlines and British Airways conduct direct flight operations to Jordan. Both these airlines traverse over Europe, between London Heathrow and Amman Airports. These direct flights are not more than 5 hours in duration. A seasonal direct flight by Easyjet connects London Gatwick Airport with King Hussein International in Aqaba.
Royal Jordanian Airlines often provides the cheapest tickets to Jordan, even in the busy season. Although these flights operate only between London Heathrow Airport and Amman’s Queen Alia International, this one direct connection makes travel easy and cheap for all cities in both countries. Flight number RJ 112 leaves for Amman from Heathrow at 5:05 PM and arrives at midnight in 5 hours, give or take 15 minutes. This flight is scheduled to take off every day. On the way back, you can hop on to the RJ 111 flight, at noon Jordan Time and arrive in London Heathrow, at 3 in the afternoon. RJ 111 is also operated once a day.
Regardless of the hot temperature, as in some weeks of July, the mercury remains in the high thirties; the summer season is the busiest and high-priced as compared to the rest of the year. Due to the returning non-resident Jordanians on the school break, June to August exhibits higher fares on tickets and hotel rooms.
Fortunately, December retains its title of being the cheapest month of the year to come to Jordan. The nights are chilly, but with just a light jacket you can explore Jordan even in the night. The thermometer indicates highs in the late teens with chances of rain and snow in the western hilly areas of the country. December, before Christmas time, can get you best air ticket fares and cheap accommodations.
Jordan has two international airports that serve the population of the country adequately. Both of these airports are on the western side of the country, where the more substantial bulk of the population lives.
Jordan has very varied weather across its land. While most of the country is a desert, the western half gets some rainfall due to its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. To the east, there are oases around which small towns have sprouted. There are hilly areas in Jordan where it snows in the winters as well. Even though different parts of the country experience different weather patterns, in our opinion, it is best to come to Jordan between February and May. Alternatively, come in the fall/winter time between October and November. Even though the winters are pleasant in Jordan and comfortable in Amman, there is still a chill in the air, especially in the night, which is not what British tourists usually seek in that part of the year. The warm sun keeps the temperatures hovering between the 15°C to 24°C range.
Jordan has been inhabited by humans for the last nine thousand years, ever since the early humans left Africa for the first time. Since Biblical times, the historical region east of the river Jordan has seen three major world religions and cultures collide and amalgamate. There are ancient castles, rock-cut architecture dwellings and nature reserves in the country worth exploring.
The JETT bus moves from Amman to Aqaba, and then to Israel. The preferred mode of transport within Jordan is the taxis since there are plenty to go around. Taxis provide the flexibility of time and work without any schedules. Taxis are a bit more expensive but reach far beyond the set routes of the bus networks. Be it a cream colour service taxi, which moves on the set path, or a free-range yellow taxi; it is best first to negotiate the fare and then sit in the back seat. Insist that you would pay the amount on the meter and ask the driver to turn it on. There have been some reports that drivers keep your luggage as ‘hostage’ in their trucks until the passenger does not pay the required amount. To deal with these situations, please keep your luggage on the back seat, by your side. For a trip that covers ten kilometres, the driver should charge you not more than three Jordanian Dollars.
Jordan has protected and preserved its economy after the country signed a peace treaty with Israel. Many chains of luxury hotels have opened their flagship projects in Amman, to serve the travellers with world-class services. There are more economical staying options, as well.
