New Route of the Day (3 December 2022): Vueling between Barcelona and Amman
Vueling has resumed service to Amman in Jordan, a destination it last served briefly in the summer of 2010. The 2-weekly service from Barcelona began on Saturday 3 December, with flights departing the Spanish airport on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Competition on the 3,200-kilometre route comes from Royal Jordanian which also operates 2-weekly (on Thursdays and Sundays) using 150-seat A320s.
