December 2010: The European Union (EU) and Jordan signed a comprehensive air services agreement (ASA) establishing a “Euro Mediterranean Aviation Area” also known as a Common Aviation Area (CAA). The (ASA) was expected and follows a similar accord signed earlier this month with Georgia.
In line with the (CAA) principles, there will be full liberalization of respective market access and all (EU) airlines will be able to operate direct flights to Jordan from anywhere in the (EU) and vice-versa for Jordanian carriers without restrictions on fares, routes and numbers of flights. “The cross-investments between Jordan and Europe will be encouraged, allowing any (EU) carriers to set up a subsidiary in Jordan and vice-versa,” the European Commission (EC) noted in a statement.
Jordan will also harmonize its legislation with European standards and implement (EU) aviation rules in areas such as safety, security, environment, consumer protection, air traffic management, economic regulation, competition issues and social aspects. “Today's agreement will boost trade and tourism in Jordan and the (EU). It will allow Jordan to become a full partner of the (EU) in aviation and pave the way towards a wider Euro Mediterranean Aviation Area. This is a very important step in our strategy of closer integration between the (EU) and its Mediterranean partners,” (EC) VP Transport, Siim Kallas said.
The (EU) is aiming to broaden the Euro Mediterranean Aviation Area with the addition of other partners. A similar agreement was concluded with Morocco in 2006 and negotiations are ongoing with Israel, Tunisia, and Lebanon.
June 2011: Jordan Aircraft Maintenance appointed Simon Tate as (CEO), replacing Bashir Abdel Hadi, who will become a member of the board of directors.
November 2011: In its 18th update on the list of banned airlines in the European Union (EU), the European Commission (EC) added part of Jordan Aviation (JOR)’s fleet and air carrier Rollins Air (ROL) of Honduras to the list due to numerous and repeated safety deficiencies.
Three 767 airplanes will be removed from Jordan Aviation (JOR)’s operating fleet into the (EU). (JOR) is expected to improve safety in a sustainable manner through a number of assessment visits, the (EC) said. All operations of Rollins Air (ROL) were imposed by the (EC) pending the resolution of various significant safety issues that were initially raised by France. “The (EC) is ready to spare no effort to assist its [neighbors] in building their technical and administrative capacity to overcome any difficulties in the area of safety as quickly as possible,” said Siim Kallas, (EC) Vice President. “In the meantime, safety comes first. We cannot afford any compromise in this area. Where we have evidence inside or outside the [EU] that air carriers are not performing safe operations we must act to exclude any risks to safety.” The (EC) adopted the list following the unanimous opinion of the Air Safety Committee. The new list replaces the previous one established in April 2011.
