Petra Airlines is an airline based in Amman, Jordan. The company was founded in 2005 as a subsidiary of RUM Group (which also owned now defunct Air Rum), but acquired its first airplane only in October 2010. The name of the company is derived from the rock cut city of Petra, one of the most famous tourist sights in Jordan.
In early 2011, Petra Airlines began providing charter services to tour operators. In 2012, Petra Airlines is upgrading its license to become a scheduled airline.
