about us

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.
