Delta Air Lines is announcing the start of its new nonstop flight from Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport to New York’s – John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on Friday, 6 June 2008. The new service will be operated using a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and will operate 4 times per week. The new service is the only scheduled nonstop service, operated by a U.S. airline, between Jordan and the United States and will strengthen business and tourism links between the two countries.

“We are delighted to offer our customers from Jordan the opportunity to fly nonstop to New York, the world’s largest travel market and leading financial centre,” said Tony Charaf, Delta’s president of Technical Operations. “Travellers flying from Jordan will benefit from some 40 convenient connections throughout the United States and Canada to business and leisure destinations including Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Tampa and Washington. The new flight will also offer opportunities for freight forwarders and cargo shippers transporting commodities such as textiles.

On its inaugural flight, Delta will sponsor and transport internationally acclaimed art exhibition, Breaking the Veils: Women Artists from the Islamic World. The exhibit includes 71 works of art from 51 women representing more than 20 Islamic countries, including Indonesia, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq is scheduled to tour ten U.S. cities. The debut will take place during a gala reception at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas on June 20. Delta is the official airline sponsor for the Tour which is presented by The ArtReach Foundation, an Atlanta-based non-profit. Breaking the Veils, inaugurated in 2002 by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, of Jordan, was organized by Her Royal Highness Princess Wijdan Al Hashemi, Ph.D., President of the Royal Society of Fine Art, Jordan, and the Pan Mediterranean Women Artists Network (F.A.M.) of Greece. An evening reception under the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa bint Ali will be held on Tuesday 3 June at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts to honor Delta as the Official airline sponsor for the U.S. Tour.

Charaf added: “We are proud to commemorate our new non-stop service from Amman to New York by transporting a truly historic exhibition of Islamic art and given our position as a global corporation, fully support cultural events that reflect the interests of our customers.”
