Royal Jordanian Unveils Alia Retro Jet

Royal Jordanian is marking Jordan’s centennial celebrations by painting one of its modern aircraft in the colours of its forerunner – Alia.

The Alia brand was retiring in 1986 – 35 years ago – and Royal Jordanian became the new national airline with its well known livery.
