Air Jordan 55

 

Air Jordan

 

In 1950 Air Jordan was founded by H. E. Ismail Bilbeisi Pasha to operate Airspeed Consuls on various short-haul routes from Amman. Investment from the American Trans Ocean Airlines in 1953 upgraded the aircraft to DC3s.

 

The flights below came from the November 55 Air Jordan timetable from www.timetableimages.com .

 

In 70 Air Jordan were operating DC3s and C-46 aircraft on these routes. Flights that connected Beirut and Damascus did not allow local traffic between these airports.

 

The radio beacon for Damascus, a waypoint for Petra sightseeing and a further waypoint to keep routes out of what was then the limits of Israeli airspace have been added to routes as needed. For flightsim simplicity the Israeli code for Jerusalem is used as it appears in FSX. The airport has not moved, just the political situation.

 

No discussion of the past, present or future situation will be entertained in the forums.
