Chairman message

 In 1998 we initiated our plans to create what was to be the first privately owned aircraft in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. That vision came to life in Oct 2000 when we operated our first flight with our first aircraft, a Boeing 737-400 aircraft.

We have progressively grown Jordan Aviation during the years since with the narrow body aircraft being joined by our first Wide Body aircraft, an AIRBUS A310, some 2 years later in 2003. Since that date the company has developed in all areas including the expansion of our operating permit to become approved for World Wide operations.

We are a member of IATA and also hold IOSA [IATA Operational Safety Audit] accreditation since first attaining it in 2006 having achieved the standard and having the laid down procedures running through our company to meet the stringent requirements of the audits performed by a team of approved IATA auditors at each renewal since that first accreditation.

Over the years, our fleet has increased to enable us to offer a range of aircraft types to suit the needs of the markets we serve – we now have the Airbus A320 aircraft that has joined our Boeing 737 aircraft and these can be

seen operating to the Far East , Africa and Northern Europe. Our wide body aircraft have ETOPS capability and operate around the globe to destinations in the Far East, Indian Sub-Continent, Middle East, Africa and Europe and across the South Atlantic to countries such as Brazil, Uruguay, Venezuela and various Caribbean nations.

We have provided aircraft on Wet Lease operations to a number of airlines in Europe, the Middle East, Northern & Central Africa and this will continue. We have a range of passengers flights with Holiday charters charter flights operating under our prefix JAV also the ongoing development of our Scheduled Services operating under our R5 flight prefix as allocated to us by IATA.

We are proud to be a provider the United Nations carrying their Peace Keeps to the 4 corners of the world, and the UN World Food Programme, in assisting them with the critical, humanitarian missions they perform. I had the pleasure of travelling to New York to address the United Nations when we pledged our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact and the 10 Principals that this encompasses. In 2010, we moved in to our own facility at Queen Alia International Airport which brought together all of the sections that manage & control our aircraft in to our Operations & Technical Center.

Here we undertake the maintenance of our own aircraft and also client airlines from other countries. We have our Operations and Engineering infrastructure and also the important elements of our Safety, Aviation Security and Quality all working together in one place. The credit for our achievements is to be attributed to the vision and plan of the Board of Directors and our Senior Management Group and that has enabled us to achieve positive financial results year on year since commencing operations. This has been supported by the efforts of everyone working in our airline, from our Flight Deck and Cabin Crews operating the flights, to Engineers and Mechanics providing the technical support through to a whole group of our employees supporting the operation from our Head Office in central Amman and our Operations & Technical Centre at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman by providing a range of services to ensure a safe and secure operation.

We will continue to develop our company and see our expansion in to other areas and destinations and, in doing so, will maintain our standards to ensure a Safe and Secure operation.

Our management team come from different backgrounds but approach their work with real energy and passion, bringing vital experience.

Jordan Aviation was founded in 1998 as a privately owned Jordanian Airline headquartered in Amman, by the ambitious determined entrepreneur Captain Mohammed AL-Khashman. Captain Khashmans vision was realized in October 2000 when JATE obtained its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and commenced operation in November 2000. This realization was appreciated once again as JATE became a member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO).Between the years 2001 and 2003 Jordan Aviation concentrated its activities on charter contracts with the U.N peace keeping troops and now it is their favored vendor. The United Nations acknowledged JATEs efforts by granting it several awards and recognition letters.As a result of declaring Aqaba as an open sky territory and due to the relaxation of the civil air regulations the company relocated its operation to King Hussein International Airport, and launched its first flight from there in 2003. During the years 2005 and 2007 JATE operated programmed charter flights from King Hussein International Airport to destinations in the region like Kuwait, Doha, Alexandria, and Bahrain.JATE's charter routes now cover the Globe.

In 2006 JATE started leasing its aircraft to other Arab and foreign airlines on Dry Lease basis especially during the peak periods. On that same year JATE completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and a re-audit in 2008, thus becoming one of the youngest airlines to complete this audit with no findings, joining the worlds leading airlines in their commitment to global safety and security.The Airline, last October, signed a set of aircraft acquisition deals for 10 Different size and capacity aircrafts which are being deployed to achieve the company goals, meet corporate objectives, facilitate the implementation of the five year plan, and meet the projected growth in air traffic and travel in the region. SWICORP, the leading corporate equity and investment firm, purchased a strategic stake in Jordain Aviation by financing the acquisition of the new Aircraft, thus providing JATE with the financial resources and strategic support required to drive further growth in the coming years and With JATEs excellent track record of growth and strong commitment to customers and employees this transaction will be a compelling next step forward in JATEs evolution.

Jordan Aviation started with one Aircraft and 28 employees, now the airline is currently operating 17 Boeings and Airbuses with others joining as business grows. The Aircraft are being served by 650 staff members, a number that will reach 1200 by the middle of next year. The Airline s long term strategic plans are to operate 30 aircraft by 2013.Because of its well structured long term strategic plan,

in addition to Captain Khashman s vision JATE is on its way to become a public shareholding company within ten years, and on top of all that JATE s continuous quest for comprehensive management, total quality management (TQM), safety management system(SMS), security management system (SEMS,AVSEC), and the willingness to challenge the business in the airline industry Jordan Aviation is now number one airline in the Middle East region in charter Business with a remarkable market share. In addition to that JAV was globally and locally recognized not just by the United Nations, but also by the WFP, as well as by World wide Governments and Establishments. Jordan Aviation also received His Majesty King Abdulla the second reward for the top 10 projects in improving Aqaba economics.

Jordan Aviation Airline will continue its efforts in achieving the global recognition by its efficiency, and its readiness in structuring its operations with the highest standards of safety and security.
