Royal Wings (RW, Arabic: الأجنحة الملكية‎) is a Royal Jordanian Group Company and the charter arm of Royal Jordanian, is an airline based in Amman, Jordan. Its main base is Queen Alia International Airport (AMM), Amman with a hub at Amman Civil Airport (ADJ).

History[edit]

The scheduled service strategy of Royal Wings was initiated to develop a domestic and regional carrier for Jordan which could adequately serve the needs of domestic travel, national and regional tours. During the introduction of Royal Wings, the fleet consisted of two Bombardier DHC-8 which operated scheduled flights from Amman Civil Airport in Marka to Aqaba, Tel Aviv, Gaza, Arish, Ankara, Aleppo, Sharm el-Sheikh and Alexandria, in addition to charter services to a number of destinations namely, Larnaca, Rhodes, Antalya, Dalaman, Bodrum, Hurghada, Sharm el-Sheikh, Alexandria, Luxor and Aswan, mainly during the summer holiday season (June to October) and on occasions of festivals like Eids, Easter, Christmas and New Year. During 2005, Royal Wings went through restructuring and transformation to adjust to the aviation environment in the region. Royal Wings has now moved into a new and exciting phase to meet the growth and needs of the global aviation industry by positioning itself as an international low cost chartered carrier operating out of Jordan. Royal Wings has acquired a new and modern fleet and transformed itself on the ground and in the air to meet the highest international standards of safety, reliability and service.

In addition to air transport, Royal Wings provides handling and maintenance services to other aircraft. In 1979, the Fixed-base operator (FBO) was established at Amman Civil Airport by providing VIP handling to all general aviation aircraft as well as for commercial flights.

Royal Wings objectives and goals are to maintain service and operate short-to-medium range modern aircraft safely and efficiently to potential domestic, regional and international airports, provide an affordable, convenient and efficient service with convenient timings and comfortable travel.
