Direct flights out of Amman

When I was living in Spain, I used to love how I could head out of work on Friday evening, go to the airport and catch a flight to a nearby country for just a weekend getaway. Since moving to Amman, I’ve so far only been to Lebanon for a quick 48 hour trip, but I am always up to travel more so I thought I’d investigate a bit into what direct flights there are out of the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman.

Here’s what I found, organized by flight duration…
