Flying to Amman with British Airways
Just five hours after take-off from London Heathrow (LHR), you will arrive in Queen Alia International Airport (AMM). A pleasant afternoon arrival gives you plenty of time and opportunity to experience this fast-modernising city before the cool Arabian night begins.
Amman is just the start of your journey, however, as the real draw to Jordan is the diverse landscape and its ancient and turbulent history. Whether this is your first visit or fifteenth, a trip to Jordan wouldn’t be complete without heading south to the Wadi Rum and the desert. Try a moonlit tour of Petra’s mysterious halls or head to the Dead Sea resorts to see this natural wonder’s eerily lifeless shores. Make sure to see some of the best Roman ruins outside of Italy, just 30 kilometres outside Amman in Jerash.

What to do in Amman and beyond
Inside the city, you’ll find delicious cuisine and wonderful hospitality, alongside some historic treasures, but mostly a modern metropolis making its mark. But Amman acts as a gateway to ancient cultures and bustling trade routes, to majestic natural wonders and the stunning city of Petra.
