By Brett Gibbons

Winter sunseekers will have a new exotic destination to choose from after easyJet announced it would be commencing flights to Jordan.

The low-cost carrier has confirmed the launch of a new route and holidays from Manchester Airport to Aqaba in Jordan this winter, with special fare deals available.

Flights and holidays have gone on sale to the scenic Jordanian city, a perfect destination for a splash of year-round sunshine and Middle Eastern culture. Visitors to this sun-kissed city on the Red Sea have easy access to the lunar-like landscapes of Wadi Rum and the ancient architectural wonders of Petra.

Services will operate up to twice a week on Mondays and Fridays throughout the winter, with flights scheduled to take off from December 6 and one-way fares available from just £95.99.

Ali Gayward, easyJet ’s UK country manager, said: “We are delighted to announce today that we are adding even more exciting destinations to our Manchester network, with new flights to Aqaba in Jordan.

"We know our customers can’t wait to go on a long-awaited and well-deserved holiday, so this new route will prove popular for customers wishing to get away for some winter sun and further strengthens our Manchester international network, providing customers with great value fares and ever more choice this winter.”

Karen Smart, managing director at Manchester Airport, added: “The announcement of this new route is fantastic news for passengers who are seeking some sunshine this winter, and we are delighted to see easyJet expanding its Manchester network and offering even more choice to travellers.

“As Covid-19 restrictions continue to ease, we hope to see an increase in the variety and frequency of routes available this winter, ensuring that for those seeking a much-needed break, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.”
