Lawmakers kick off debate on key RJ report

[3/24/2019 3:36:51 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Members of the Lower House of Parliament on Sunday started to discuss a key report on Royal Jordanian's activities and business dealings following a two-year investigation carried out by the chamber's Committee on Public Services and Transport.

Chairman of the committee, Khaled Abu Hassan, read out the committee's recommendations which urged further investigation into aircraft lease and selling contracts as well as probing the national carrier's administrative and financial matters.

In its report, the committee called for an immediate end to the services of current RJ executive director and re-form the company's board of director citing its "incompetence to address current imbalances".

The report urged a better approach based on "focusing on achievements rather than persons", in addition to ditching the idea of selling Royal Wings, an RJ-owned charter company, to the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority.

Additionally, the report recommended that the flag carrier refrain from selling a land plot it owns in a west Amman area. The committee also demanded that RJ be placed under the oversight of the Audit Bureau.

Moreover, the committee urged the government to help RJ recover funds deposited with commercial banks in Sudan and offer the carrier tax relief in addition to revisiting contracts signed between RJ and the International Airport Group (AIG).
