Royal Jordanian has officially announced that it will be integrating into its fleet 2 used Airbus A 330-200s from April 2010 which shall be used to replace Airbus A 310-300 operated routes to London Heathrow and Far East Asia. These aircraft are those of the now defunct carrier Air Comet. In addition, RJ too confirmed that it shall be re launching flights to Kuala Lumpur which will be flown via Bangkok using an A 332.
An excellent move by RJ to fast track its replacement of its aging A 310-300 fleet with more efficient aircraft such as the A 332. This will however be a temporary measure until the B 787-800s arrive from 2013 onwards. RJ too will be undertaking a massive refurbishment of the interior of its flagship A 340-200 fleet with new business class seats and an upgrade to its in flight entertainment in economy and business class.
