According to tour operators, sales of tours to Jordan have gradually increased over the past few months, and are starting to show good dynamics. Everything points to a gradual recovery of the demand for the destination.
As per Intourist company, this became possible largely due to the fact that since March 1, Jordan has been accepting Russian tourists on conditions as close as possible to pre-pandemic situation.
“Sales of tours to Jordan increased after the country effectively returned entry rules to pre-Covid levels, which, in turn, created a pent-up demand effect. Now, the destination feels confident, gradually reviving interest of Russian tourists in their resorts. But, of course, for a full recovery, some more time is needed and the resumption of direct regular or charter flights to Amman,” the press service of the tour operator Intourist said.
Russian Express tourists also buy tours to Jordan, but they do it infrequently.
The Kmp Group does not yet record high sales, since the tour operator has actively begun to develop the Jordanian destination quite recently.
However, as Margarita Goncharenko, head of the outbound tourism department of Kmp Group, said, she sees Jordan's prospects as quite good. The expert says that soon there may be more requests for this resort.
The lack of direct flights limits the growth of demand, experts say. Now, according to Intourist, tourists prefer three types of connecting flights: by Egypt Air (via Cairo), Turkish Airlines (via Istanbul) or Arab carriers (via Dubai or Doha).
