Braced for air strikes on Syria, some airlines re-route flights

Some major airlines were re-routing flights on Wednesday after Europe’s air traffic control agency warned aircraft flying in the eastern Mediterranean to exercise caution due to possible air strikes into Syria. Eurocontrol said in a notification published on Tuesday afternoon that air-to-ground and cruise missiles could be used over the following 72 hours and there was a possibility of intermittent disruption to radio navigation equipment. U.S. President Donald Trump and Western allies are discussing possible military action to punish Syria’s President Bashar Assad for a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on a rebel-held town that had long held out against government forces. Lebanon’s Middle East Airlines, one of the few to fly directly over Syria, is rerouting those flights temporarily, a Beirut airport source said.


A spokeswoman for Air France said the airline had changed some flights paths following the warning, including for Beirut and Tel Aviv flights, while budget airline easyJet said it would also re-route flights from Tel Aviv. Aviation regulators have been stepping up monitoring of conflict zones since Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed by a surface-to-air missile over Ukraine in 2014, killing all 298 people on board. Recent warnings have tended to be after military action has started, and so Eurocontrol’s pre-emptive notice suggests a heightening of regulatory scrutiny.Trump on Tuesday cancelled a planned trip to Latin America later this week to focus on responding to the Syria incident, the White House said. Trump on Monday warned of a quick, forceful response once responsibility for the attack was established.The Eurocontrol warning on its website did not specify the origin of any potential missile threat.

“Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken when planning flight operations in the Eastern Mediterranean/Nicosia FIR area,” it said, referring to the designated airspace. Aviation regulators in countries including the United States, Britain, France and Germany have previously issued warnings against airlines entering Syrian airspace, leading most carriers to avoid the area. The only commercial flights above Syria as of 0115 GMT on Wednesday were being flown by Syrian Air and Lebanon’s Middle East Airlines, according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24. At other periods later in the day, there were no flights using the airspace. Eurocontrol included a broader area outside the airspace controlled by Damascus in its statement. A spokesman for Germany’s Lufthansa said on Wednesday its airlines were aware of the Eurocontrol warning and were in close contact with authorities. “As a proactive precaution, Lufthansa Group airlines have already avoided the airspace in the eastern Mediterranean for some time now,” he said.

Ryanair, British Airways, Etihad Airways, and Royal Jordanian representatives said flights were operating normally at their respective airlines, but the situation was being monitored closely. Emirates also said it was closely monitoring the situation and that it would “make adjustments as needed”. EgyptAir is not currently planning changes to flight paths following the warning, a source close to the matter said. Israel’s flag carrier El Al declined to comment. EgyptAir and several other major airlines that fly in the area did not respond immediately to a request for comment. The Nicosia flight information region named in the Eurocontrol statement covers the island of Cyprus and surrounding waters, according to a map on the agency’s website. The same map did not designate any specific territory as being the “Eastern Mediterranean” region. Last year, North Korea tested missiles without warning, leading some airlines to re-route flights to avoid portions of the Sea of Japan. Eurocontrol’s warning cited a document from the EuropeanAviation Safety Agency (EASA), Europe’s safety regulator.

Royal Jordanian Invites People to Choose a Name for its Frequent Flyer Programme

Royal Jordanian has invited its Jordanian fans, customers and frequent flyers to take part in renaming the airline’s loyalty program, by submitting their suggestions through RJ’s social media channels.The carrier says rebranding the name comes in line with its business plan to restructure and strengthen the programme’s offerings.


RJ says the name should follow certain criteria: a one- or two-word name that should work in both Arabic and English and reflect pride; it should relate to Royal Jordanian and flying. The tone should be premium and elegant, yet the name itself should be catchy and easy to read and pronounce.

Royal Jordanian turnaround plan, with new Washington DC route, would be subject to US anti-Gulf tax

Royal Jordanian is once again in turnaround mode. Having been battered by the global financial crisis, Arab Spring and regional instability, RJ's mid-decade stability was short lived as currency swings and over expansion in Asia returned it to a loss. New CEO Stefan Pichler has a five year management plan to reduce unit costs by 6%, while growing unit revenue 7%.RJ will consolidate its narrow body fleet, likely removing its Embraer E-jetsand growing the number of Airbus narrowbodies. RJ's widebody fleet of 787s – already reduced from its initial order – may be capped.


There is significant underutilisation of the 787 fleet, which means that RJ would be enabled to achieve its objective of opening Washington DC service within five years. However, Royal Jordanian's US network would be subject to a proposed tax provision from the US that targets Gulf super connector airlines. RJ, a member of American Airlines' antitrust immunity joint venture, appears to become a casualty if the bill passes into law. Other network developments include RJ's plan to convert Copenhagen and Stockholm charters to scheduled service while developing a secondary hub at Aqaba, Jordan's gateway to Red Sea tourism. Mr Pichler is RJ's latest executive out to prove Royal Jordanian has a sustainable market niche in the Levant, despite strong growth from super connectors in the Arabian Gulf.

Royal Jordanian announces it was to stop two of its Asia-Pacific services - to Guangzhou and Jakarta as due to financial reasons

The cancellation of these operations effectively ceases the airline’s services to mainland China and Indonesia. Royal Jordanian currently operates a three-times-weekly Amman-Bangkok-Guangzhou service and a three-times-weekly Amman-Kuala Lumpur-Jakarta service. Following the closing of the two services, the carrier will still operate flights to three destinations in Asia-Pacific: Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Hong Kong. In November 2016, Royal Jordanian took delivery of its latest - sixth - Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This aircraft and a seventh B787, expected to join the RJ fleet at the beginning of next year, are being operated on a capital lease. The other five Dreamliners are being operated on an operational lease. The B787s are replacing Airbus A340s and A330s the carrier previously operated; five of these aircraft types were phased out two years ago and another two A330s are expected to be retired from the RJ fleet in the near future. In March 2017, Royal Jordanian Airlines announced it had banned any electronic or electrical devices on board flights to or from the United States.
