UK budget carrier EasyJet is to launch thrice-weekly service from London Gatwick to Amman in Jordan, effective 27 March 2011.

Alaa Batayneh, Jordan's minister of transport, says: "Jordan has made significant progress in liberalising its air transport policy over the last several years, including negotiation of the comprehensive open skies agreement with the European Commission, further improving the Kingdom's competitive position in the region."

Curtis Grad, CEO, Airport International group, says: "With our new terminal coming online in 2012, we will be well positioned to serve the new demand stimulated by EasyJet, further sustaining this strong growth trend."

The launch coincides with the open skies agreement that Jordan and the European Union have signed, says the carrier.
