  1. General
    1. These Conditions of Carriage form part of your contract of carriage with us and apply to the carriage we provide to you unless Article 3 says otherwise.
    2. These Conditions of Carriage may be modified or changed at our sole discretion.
  2. Code shares
    On some services we have arrangements with other airlines known as code shares.

If such arrangements apply to your carriage, the following conditions will apply:
    1. We will advise you of the name of the other airline at the time you make your reservation when you make it with us or, if made through an Authorised Agent, we will endeavour to make sure that the Authorised Agent gives you such information;
    2. these Conditions of Carriage will apply where we have a legal liability to you and the conditions of carriage of the operating carrier will apply in all other respects, with the result that, for example, provisions relating to baggage acceptance, check-in and boarding, refusal and limitation of carriage, conduct aboard aircraft, and schedules, delays and cancellation of flights may differ from these Conditions of Carriage.
  3. Overriding law
    If these Conditions of Carriage are inconsistent with any Tariff or with laws which apply to your contract of carriage, the Tariff or law will apply. If any of these Conditions of Carriage becomes invalid in this way, the other conditions will still apply.
  4. Conditions prevail over Regulations
    If these Conditions of Carriage are inconsistent with any of our Regulations, these Conditions of Carriage will prevail and apply. If any part of our Regulations becomes invalid in this way, the other parts of our Regulations will still apply.
  5. English language text prevails
    These Conditions of Carriage are translated into several languages. If there is any inconsistency between the English text and a non-English translation thereof, the English text will prevail and apply unless applicable local law requires otherwise. The English text can be viewed on our Website.
  1. General
    1. We will provide carriage only to persons who possess a valid Ticket (which includes the Flight Coupon for that flight, unused Flight Coupons for subsequent flights recorded in the Ticket, and the Passenger Coupon), provided that such person is named as the Passenger in the Ticket and he or she produces a valid passport which, in the case of an Electronic Ticket, must bear a serial number that matches the number specified in the e-Ticket Receipt/Itinerary.
    2. In the case of an Electronic Ticket, you are required to bring your e-Ticket Receipt/Itinerary or Passenger Receipt with you to the airport as it may be necessary for you to present it to us and to airport immigration and security personnel.
    3. You will not be entitled to be carried on a flight if the Ticket presented is mutilated, spoilt or tampered with, or if it has been altered otherwise than by us or our Authorised Agent. For replacement of a lost or damaged Ticket see Article 5.
    4. An e-Ticket Receipt/Itinerary is deemed to serve as a passenger ticket and a baggage check/document of carriage, for the purposes of the Warsaw Convention and the Montreal Convention.
    5. You cannot transfer your Ticket to another person. See Article 3 for situations relating to non-use of your Ticket.
    6. Some of our Tickets are sold at special fares which may be partially or completely non-refundable. You may wish to ensure that you have appropriate insurance to cover instances where you are unable to make use of such a Ticket.
    7. The Ticket is and remains at all times our property if issued by us or our Authorised Agent. If the Ticket has been issued by, or on behalf of, another airline, it is and remains the property of that airline.
  2. Validity Period
    1. Unless otherwise stated in the Ticket, in these Conditions of Carriage, or in the Tariffs, a Ticket is valid for:
      1. one year from the date of issue, if completely unused; or
      2. one year from the date of first travel on the Ticket, but only if your first flight occurred within one year of the issuance date of the Ticket.
    2. If, after you have begun your carriage, a person you are traveling with on one of our flights dies en route, we will modify your Ticket either by waiving any Ticket restriction requiring you to stay a minimum period at a Stopover, or by extending the validity of your Ticket.
    3. If a member of your Immediate Family dies after you have begun your carriage, we will modify your Ticket either by waiving any Ticket restriction requiring you to stay a minimum period at a Stopover, or by extending the validity of your Ticket for a period no longer than 45 Days from the date of the death. No such modification will be made unless we are provided with a valid death certificate or alternative evidence satisfactory to us.
  3. Non-use of Ticket
    1. If, before beginning your carriage and using any part of your Ticket, you are prevented from traveling solely by Force Majeure and part or all of the fare for your Ticket is non-refundable, we will provide you with a credit for the non-refundable part of the fare which you can use to purchase a Ticket for yourself or another person for carriage within the next 12 months. No such credit will be given unless you have given us adequate evidence of the Force Majeure event.
    2. If, before beginning your carriage and using any part of your Ticket, a member of your Immediate Family dies and you no longer wish to travel, you will be entitled to a refund calculated in accordance with Article 10.2.1(a).

In the event of your death before beginning your carriage and using any part of your Ticket, we will provide a refund of your Ticket calculated in accordance with Article 10.2.1(a) if we are asked to do so.

In the event of your death after you have begun your carriage, we will provide a refund for the unused portion of your Ticket calculated in accordance with Article 10.2.1(b) if we are asked to do so. No such refund will be made unless we are provided with a valid death certificate or alternative evidence satisfactory to us.
  4. Sequence of Flight Coupon Use
    1. Your Ticket is valid only for the carriage recorded on the Ticket, from the place of departure via any Stopover(s) to the final place of destination. You may not use your Ticket except in accordance with the sequence stated on the Flight Coupons. You may, however, change the sequence provided in the Flight Coupons, provided that:
      1. the fare already paid for the Ticket is the same or more than the fare applicable to the new requested sequence; or
      2. you have paid any additional fare required to be paid pursuant to Article 3.4.3; or
      3. a separate fare has been collected for the unflown sector(s).
    2. Please be aware that some types of changes to the details of your travel may not result in a change of fare, but others (for example, changing the place of departure if you do not fly the first segment of your carriage, or reversing the direction of you travel) may result in a fare increase. Likewise, many fares are valid for carriage only on the dates and for the flights shown on the Ticket and may not be changed at all, or may only be changed if you pay a fare increase to us or our Authorised Agent.
    3. If you want to change the carriage details recorded in your Ticket (including change of the sequence set out in the Flight Coupons) you must contact us before departure of any flight concerned. We will work out the revised fare for your changed carriage and give you the choice of accepting and paying the new fare or keeping the carriage details recorded in your Ticket. If you decide to accept and pay the new fare, an administration fee may be payable by you if your Ticket is subject to restrictions. If the change is necessary because a Force Majeure event has occurred, we will use reasonable efforts to transport you to your next Stopover or final destination without recalculation of the fare, but only if you have provided us with adequate evidence of the Force Majeure event.
    4. If you change any part of your carriage, otherwise than in accordance with the Article (3.4.3), or you fail to check-in prior to the Check In Deadline for your flight, your unused Flight Coupons will not be valid for travel or eligible for any form of refund .until we have, or our Authorised Agent has, assessed the correct price for your actual carriage and you have paid any difference between the fare paid for your Ticket and the total fare applicable to your revised carriage.
    5. We will accept each Flight Coupon forming part of your Ticket for carriage in the class of service on the date and flight for which you have a reservation. If a Ticket has been issued without a reservation being made at the time of issue, space may be reserved later subject to our Tariff, applicable Ticket restrictions and the availability of space appropriate to the fare paid on the flight requested.
  5. Replacement of Ticket
    1. At your request, and subject to your compliance with the requirements of Article 3.5.2, we will replace your Ticket if all or part of it is lost or damaged and cannot be presented for carriage, provided there is adequate evidence, readily ascertainable at the time, that a Ticket valid for the flight(s) in question had been duly issued by us or our Authorised Agent.
    2. Before any Ticket will be replaced pursuant to Article 3.5.1, you will sign an undertaking to reimburse us for any costs and losses of the type specified in Article 3.5.4 and pay to the airline issuing the replacement Ticket (whether us or another airline) any applicable administration fee for this service. This Article will not apply if replacement of your Ticket is necessary by reason of our or our Authorised Agent"s fault or negligence.
    3. If there is no evidence that a Ticket valid for the flight(s) in question was duly issued or you do not sign the agreement required by Article 3.5.2, the airline issuing a replacement Ticket (whether us or another airline) may require you to pay up to the full Ticket fare for such replacement Ticket, subject to refund of the fare paid if and when the airline issuing the replacement Ticket becomes satisfied that the replaced Ticket has not been used before the expiry of its validity. Where we are the airline issuing the replacement Ticket, payment of the full Ticket price will be mandatory. If, in the case of Ticket loss and replacement, you subsequently find the original Ticket before the expiry of its validity and surrender it without further use to the airline which issued the new replacement Ticket (whether us or another airline), your refund will be processed at that time.
    4. Any reimbursement agreement you have signed pursuant to Article 3.5.2 will be initially for an amount up to the fare paid for the original Ticket. In the event that the original Ticket is subsequently used or cashed in by you, your obligation to reimburse will also include our costs and expenses (including legal fees and expenses) of locating/notifying you and enforcing the agreement together with any applicable administration fee(s).
  6. Our name and address on Tickets
    Our name may be abbreviated to the "RJ" Airline Designator Code in the Ticket.
    Our address is Alia - Royal Jordanian Airline Headquarters - P O Box (302) Amman (11118) Jordan.
  1. Fares
    The fare paid for your Ticket covers carriage of you and your Baggage from the airport at the place of departure to the airport at the place of destination via specified Stopovers at the times and on the dates specified in the Ticket, unless we say otherwise. Unless otherwise stated explicitly in writing, the fare does not include ground transport service between airports and between airports and town terminals. The fare for your Ticket shall be calculated according to our Tariff applicable on the date payment was made for your Ticket.
  2. Taxes, fees and charges
    1. Before carriage, you will pay to us the total amount of all applicable taxes, fees and charges imposed on us by a government or other authority, or by the operator of an airport, which we are obliged to collect from you or to pay in respect of your carriage.
    2. When you purchase your Ticket, we will advise you of all taxes, fees and charges not included in the fare, most of which normally will be shown separately on the Ticket. Taxes, fees and charges imposed on air travel are outside our control and are constantly changing and can be imposed or changed after the date your Ticket has been purchased. If a tax, fee or charge is imposed or increased after your Ticket has been purchased, you must pay to us any such tax, fee or charge, or any such increase before carriage.
    3. If your Ticket has been purchased from our Authorised Agent and such Authorised Agent omitted to give details of all applicable taxes, fees and charges, with the result no, or insufficient, payment has been made for such taxes, fees and charges, you must pay the relevant amount at the airport of departure before you will be entitled to carriage.
    4. If any tax, fee or charge is abolished or reduced and becomes no longer applicable to all or part of your carriage, a refund can be claimed in respect of any such tax, fee or charge which has been paid. Please ask us or our Authorised Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
    5. If you do not use your Ticket, you will be entitled to claim a refund of any taxes, fees or charges you have paid, less any applicable administration fee(s) if your Ticket is subject to restrictions. Please ask us or our Authorised Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
  3. Surcharges in exceptional circumstances
    1. In exceptional circumstances, charges may be imposed on us by third parties, which are of a type or amount not normally applicable to our operations (for example, insurance premium supplements or additional security costs triggered by unlawful interference with civil aviation). In addition, we may be subjected to significant increases in operational costs (for example, fuel charges) caused by exceptional circumstances beyond our control. In such cases, you will be required to pay to us, as fare surcharges, all such charges attributed by us to your carriage (even if such exceptional circumstances surcharges are imposed after the issuance date of your Ticket). We will contact you with details of any applicable fare surcharges as soon as possible. If we are unable to establish contact using your contact details, we will advise you of any applicable fare surcharge at check-in. You are free to choose not to pay a fare surcharge and receive an involuntary refund of your Ticket in accordance with the provisions of Article 10.2, in which case we will have no other liability to you.
    2. If any exceptional circumstances surcharge ceases to apply to all or part of your carriage, or a lesser amount is due, a refund can be claimed in respect of any such surcharge which has been paid. Please ask us or our Authorised Agent for details of how to claim such refund.
  4. Currency
    Fares, taxes, fees, charges and exceptional circumstances surcharges are payable in the currency of the country in which the carriage commences, converted to the currency of the country of payment (if different) at the applicable Banker"s Selling Rate in effect on the date payment is made, unless we or our Authorised Agent require payment in a different currency (for example, because of the non-convertibility of the local currency). We may at our discretion, accept payment in any currency, subject to applicable local law.
    When you pay through credit card, Your credit card issuer bank may charge You for currency conversion. We do not receive any amounts of such charges and therefore You acknowledge that We shall not be responsible for any such charges. You will be fully responsible for the payment of any amounts which may occur as a result of currency conversion or discrepancy.

    2. You must inform us at the time of booking if you have a medical condition or other condition for which you may require medical assistance or special assistance during embarkation, disembarkation or aboard an aircraft (for example, the circumstances set out in Articles 7.3 to 7.5). Your booking will be logged in our system as provisional and converted to a confirmed reservation by us once we are satisfied that you have received any medical clearance required under Article 7.5 and all conditions attached to such clearance have, or will be, complied with by you. If you are flying to or from the USA, application of local rules may mean that you do not need to comply with all or part of the requirements set out in this Article 5.1.3. We will inform you how the requirements may differ, upon your request.
    3. If Articles 7.3 to 7.5 apply to you, your booking for your reservation must be made through our call centre in accordance with the advance time limits specified in those Articles (namely: 48 hours before flight departure in the case of Articles 7.3.2(a) and (b), and 96 hours before flight departure in the case of Article 7.3.2(c)), otherwise it may not be possible to accept the booking because of lack of time to complete applicable medical clearance requirements.
  2. Fare payment requirement

You should check the reconfirmation requirements of any other airlines involved in your carriage with them and, where necessary, reconfirm with the airline whose Airline Designator Code is entered in the Ticket for the flight in question.

  3. Fitness to fly
    1. Before boarding the aircraft for carriage you must be reasonably satisfied that you are medically fit to fly. If you have been advised that you are fit to fly provided certain precautions are taken (for example, use of medication) it is your responsibility to ensure that all such precautions are in fact taken before, during and after your flight (as the case may be) and that you will be able to produce any written evidence of your fitness to fly required by these Conditions of Carriage. To check if evidence of fitness to fly is required, see Articles 7.3.2 and 7.5, as well as Article 7.3.4 if you are flying to or from the USA.
    2. If doubt exists about your fitness to fly, you may not be accepted for carriage unless you have satisfied one of the three requirements set out in Articles 7.3.2(a) to (c). If, however, you are flying to or from the USA, you may be exempt from part or all of those requirements - see further Article 7.3.4.
      1. You have produced to us no later than 48 hours before flight a medical report from an appropriately qualified doctor, bearing a date no more than 10 Days before your flight, which confirms your fitness to travel on all flights on which you intend to travel; or
      2. You have completed and produced to us no later than 48 hours before flight a Medical Information Form (MEDIF -which is most useful where your fitness to fly is in doubt because of a recent illness, disease, treatment or operation) and we have confirmed that we are able to provide you with carriage; or
      3. You have completed and produced to us no later than 96 hours before flight a Frequent Travellers Medical Card (FREMEC - which is most useful where your fitness to fly is in doubt due to a permanent or chronic illness or disease or you require long term medical treatment) and we have confirmed that we are able to provide you with carriage.
    3. Permission to fly is required from our medical department at least 48 hours before your flight (or such shorter period as we in our absolute discretion may decide) if it appears to us that you may have a disease which meets any of the following criteria, save that where you are flying to or from the USA different rules may apply (see further Article 7.3.4 regarding USA rules):
      1. which is believed to be actively contagious or communicable and life threatening to other Passengers or crew; or
      2. which may cause or induce unusual behaviour, or a physical condition, which could have an adverse effect on the welfare and comfort of other Passengers or crew members; or
      3. which is considered to be a potential hazard to the safety of the flight; or
      4. which may cause the flight to be diverted or perform an unscheduled stop.
    4. If you are flying to or from the USA, application of local rules may mean that you do not need to comply with all or part of the requirements of Articles 7.3.2 and 7.3.3. We will inform you how the requirements may differ upon your request.
  4. Carriage of pregnant Passengers and newborn children
    1. If you are pregnant we will carry you after your 28th week of gestation only if you produce to us a medical report or letter, signed by an appropriately qualified doctor or midwife, stating your due date, and confirming that your pregnancy is uncomplicated. The report or letter should also advise us of the latest date up to which you are expected to be fit to travel. In addition, you will require prior clearance from our medical department for travel after the 35th week of gestation for flights exceeding 4 hours and after the 36th week of gestation for any other flight.
    2. It is your responsibility to check if Article 7.4.1 applies to you. If you fail to comply with its requirements or you provide incorrect information about your week of gestation, and you subsequently require in-flight medical assistance, or your flight is diverted so that you may receive medical assistance, in connection with your pregnancy, you are liable to reimburse us for any costs we incur of the type, for example, specified in Article 7.6 in accordance with the requirements of that Article.
    3. Carriage of newly born infants will generally not be permitted until 7 Days after delivery. Please ask us or our Authorised Agent for further information.
  5. Special assistance
    1. If you require special assistance because you are unable to feed yourself or use the toilet unassisted, or move around or evacuate the aircraft cabin unassisted, or you have special needs requiring special equipment, we will carry you if you have obtained prior clearance from our medical department at the time of ticketing and you comply with all applicable Regulations at all relevant times. If, however, you are flying to or from the USA, you may be exempt from part or all of those requirements - see further Article 7.5.5.
    2. If your special assistance requirements change adversely after receiving clearance pursuant to Article 7.5.1 or 7.5.4, you must seek a new clearance prior to your flight from our medical department or from your doctor (in accordance with Article 7.5.4) and comply with all of our applicable Regulations at all relevant times.
    3. If you have been cleared for carriage by our medical department pursuant to Article 7.5.1, you will not subsequently be refused carriage on the basis of your special requirements, unless you have failed to comply with these Conditions of Carriage including, for example, Articles 7.1 and 7.3.
    4. An alternative to obtaining prior clearance from our medical department for the purposes of Articles 7.5.1 and 7.5.3 is providing us at the time of ticketing with an original certificate signed by your doctor certifying that you are capable of completing your carriage safely without requiring extraordinary medical assistance in flight (for example, assistance necessary to feed yourself, or to use the toilet, or to evacuate the aircraft, or to administer medication or treatment to yourself).
    5. If you are flying to or from the USA, application of local rules may mean that you do not need to comply with all or part of the requirements of this Article 7.5. We will inform you how the requirements may differ upon your request.
  6. Passenger reimbursement of medical expenses
    If you are taken ill aboard the aircraft due to a condition pre-existing the flight (regardless of whether or not you were aware of it) or due to your pregnancy, you will pay to us the cost of expenses paid by us in treating you aboard an aircraft, transporting you on the ground, or paying for treatment provided by a third party. You will also pay any costs we have incurred in diverting an aircraft to seek medical assistance if you have contravened Articles 7.3, or 7.4 or 7.5. We may apply towards payment due to us from you the value of any unused carriage on your Ticket or unused credits to your account with us, or any of your funds in our possession.
  7. Carriage of unaccompanied children
    1. You will not be accepted for carriage if you are under 5 years of age on the date the flight commences unless you are accompanied by an escort aged 18 years or more. If you are between 5 and 16 years of age, we can arrange for an escort, provided we receive 7 Days or more notice prior to travel and an extra charge is paid.
    2. If you are more than 5 years of age, but less than 12 years old on the date the flight commences, you will not be accepted for carriage unless all the following conditions are met in full:
      1. you are accompanied at check-in by a parent, guardian or adult responsible for you who remains in the airport with an allocated member of our staff until you have boarded the aircraft and it has taken-off from the airport, and who can prove also to us that you will be met at the destination airport or Stopover airport by another parent, guardian or adult responsible for you (with full details of that person"s identity) and into whose custody you can be delivered.

      3. your ticketed carriage does not involve an en route change of airport or a scheduled Stopover exceeding 8 hours in the case of Queen Alia International Airport or 4 hours in the case of any other airport, unless a parent, guardian or adult responsible for you meets you and takes responsibility for you during the full period of the Stopover(s).
  8. On board services
    For operational reasons, we do not make any guarantees about the provision/availability of in-flight entertainment equipment and advertised programmes; advertised special meals or any other type of meals; or the availability of advertised in-flight services. We do not guarantee that special meals will always conform to their exact description. This is because they have been prepared by third parties to our order. We do not accept requests for nut free meals and we do not guarantee that the environment aboard our aircraft will be nut or nut produce free.
  9. Ground services
    We do not make any guarantees about the provision/availability of equipment and services on the ground at airports including, for example, fast track services, airport lounges and the facilities available within those lounges.
