how to get Jordan and dive with us
flight then this is a good option from many European cities. Turkish Airlines fly three times a week directly to Aqaba, you can easily make
a connecting flight to Istanbul for travelling from and to Europe.Turkish Airlines
Flights to Jordan
Many countries in Europe and elsewhere have both scheduled and charter flights to
Queen Alia Airport in Amman. The journey to Aqaba takes around 4 hours either by
taxi, bus or 45-minute flight. An option would be to arrange to visit other attractions in
Jordan at the beginning and end of your holiday and stay in Aqaba for the diving and
fun bit with us!
Other Flight Options
Depending on the time you have available and your budget there is the option to fly to
Egypt or Israel on a charter flight and then travel to Jordan. Our visitors have travelled
this way in the past via Sharm El Sheik (always flights available there) or to closer Taba
in Egypt. To get to Jordan you can take a ferry from Nuweiba or Taba to Aqaba. Another
option is to travel by land via Eilat, Israel crossing the borders at Taba and Aqaba. If flying
into Ovda, Eliat you can then simply cross the border into Jordan, it is a forty-five-minute
the bus journey from the airport to Eilat, and then you would take a five-minute taxi ride to the border. WARNING! These other options require careful planning for ferry times and border crossings
being open etc. and may not actually work out cheaper in the long term, they also require more
days at each end of your holiday here. These methods can work well if planned properly. Always
get the latest information before travelling this way
