Voyages Jules Verne has announced the introduction of scheduled flights to its popular programme of escorted tours in Jordan.
Replacing the charter arrangement from Gatwick to Aqaba, clients will now fly from Heathrow to Amman with bmi.
Travelling on scheduled flights will also extend the duration of each itinerary, enabling Voyages Jules Verne clients to spend an extra night in Jordan, staying at an additional location.
For example, VJV’s 15-night Grand Tour of Jordan itinerary now includes a stay at the luxurious Evason Ma’in Hot Springs & Six Senses Spa as well as an upgrade to its standard accommodation in Tala Bay, which is now the five-star Radisson Blu Resort.
Next year promises to be a big year for Jordan, marking as it does the 200th anniversary of the re-discovery of Petra by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt as well as the 50th anniversary of the filming of Lawrence of Arabia.
And, with the country currently experiencing a temporary drop in tourism, there really is no better time to see Jordan ‘while the tourist crowds are away’.
