Traveling to Aqaba - Jordan

Easy Jet Plane

Is it safe to travel to Jordan?

How to get to us!
Ferry from Egypt to Aqaba
Direct Flights to Aqaba
There is a direct flight to Aqaba from Brussels which you can book by Thomas Cook, so if you can get to Brussels with a connecting flight then this is a good option from many European cities.
Flights to Jordan
Easy Jet are now offering cheap flights to Amman Jordan from Gatwick UK from £106 return all year around, every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Book your flight now!
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 you holiday and stay in Aqaba for the diving and fun bit with us! Aquatours can make a tailor made package at any time of year for this type of holiday from the UK - they have been organising holidays to Jordan since 1988. Speak to Lynda or Kirk.
Other Flight Options
Depending on the time you have available and your budget their 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 bus journey from the airport to Eilat, 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 you holiday here. These methods can work well if planned properly. Always get the latest information before travelling this way.
