The country that hosts Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, announced its commitment to boost tourism by supporting low-cost airlines so visitors can choose from a wider range of flight routes. 


The announcement is part of a joint work between the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), framed in the government’s priority programme for 2021-2023 that aims to attract 4.5 million tourists by the end of 2023 through supporting low-cost airlines.


According to a press release, the Jordan Tourism Board is working with several countries “to lift the regular visa restrictions and replace them with online visas to ease travel restrictions for tourists”. Also, the JTB continues its work with marketing campaigns on social media and cooperates with international and domestic travel agencies to promote the “Jordanian tourism product”.
