This airline was established in 1963 but started to operate from 15 December 1963 after a royal decree by the late King Hussein. It was named after King Hussein's eldest child, Princess Alia bint Al Hussein of Jordan.
Royal Jordanian, the erstwhile Alia, was established on 9th December 1963 by His Majesty King Hussein. Within a week, on 15th December, the airlines started its operations. In 1965, it offered its first weekly flight to Europe (Rome) and a year later, it became a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). In 1971, it added two Boeing 707 and in 1974, it added Boeing 727, and since then it has been upgrading its fleet regularly. In 1975, Alia became the proud employer of the first Jordanian female flight engineer, who was also the first Arab woman to be a part of a crew member. In 1986, Alia was rechristened as Royal Jordanian that offers cheap flights on global routes. Within a decade, in 1996, its services extended to 48 cities across 4 continents. In 2007, it became a part of the Oneworld Alliance, about a decade after it had signed its first Codeshare Agreement, which proves beneficial for Royal Jordanian’s passengers.
