More than 20 international air carriers fly into Queen Alia International Airport,
located 35km south of Amman. These include: Royal Jordanian, United Airlines Continental,
U.S. Airways, American Airlines, Air France, Delta, Virgin Atlantic, Iberia, KLM,
British Airways, Emirates, Gulf Air, Lufthansa, Qatar Airlines, Tarom, Thai Airways,
and Turkish Airlines.
A direct flight from the United States to Amman runs between ten and fourteen hours
depending on where you are located (the east coast being the shortest time), while
flying time from most major European cities is about four hours.
Most medical trip packages will include airport pick-ups and transfers. If this
is not the case, then the easiest way to get to downtown Amman from the airport
is by taxi; the trip takes approximately 35 minutes and the fare is about 15 JODs
(equivalent to around $22 USD or €17 Euros). There are also shuttle buses to
the city center bus station leaving the airport every half-hour.
Once in Amman, you will find traveling around to be safe, speedy and simple by using
transportation such as taxis, rental cars, tour buses and the public bus system.
