A new A321-200PF freighter joined the Royal Jordanian (RJ) fleet on March 24, bolstering its capacity to meet the cargo industry’s increasing demand. This addition aligns with the airline’s fleet strategy to have 41 aircraft.

The twin-engine, medium-haul aircraft has a large cargo capacity, containing 14 pallets and container positions on the main deck and an additional ten on the lower deck, with a total payload capacity of 28 tons with a range of 3,500 kilometers. The freighter is leased on a long-term basis from UMBF and is one of the most versatile aircraft in its class. The aircraft will reach 9 new destinations on the RJ route network.

RJ has developed the air cargo industry through the implementation of several strategies, increasing sales and improving the quality of services provided to customers in terms of speed, quality, and accuracy, said RJ Vice Chairman/CEO Samer Majali. RJ aims to enhance Jordan’s position as the logistics hub in the region and increase its share in the freight market on a regional and international level, supported by the new cargo terminal that is fully automated, serving all kinds of cargo products.

Earlier this year, the airline introduced two new 195-E2 jets to serve short-haul destinations. Additional Embraer 195 and 190-E2 regional jets, narrow-body A320/A321 neo aircraft, and wide-body Boeing 787-9 will join the fleet. RJ also plans to expand its route network, reaching 60 points around the world in the next few years.
