Royal Jordanian Airlines (RJ) and the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF) have renewed their social partnership agreement regarding donations of frequent flyers miles in the Royal Plus programme, a partnership that started in 2014.
The agreement was signed at KHCF offices by RJ’s Chief Commercial Officer Server Aydin deputizing for the president/CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat and Director General of KHCF Nisreen Qatamish.
Under this agreement, RJ gives its frequent flyers, members of its Royal Plus programme, the chance to contribute to the fight against cancer by donating their collected travel miles to the King Hussein Cancer Foundation and Centre to be used by patients to travel to therapeutic recreation camps abroad as part of the patients’ treatment to alleviate the anxieties and concerns they may have. The miles could also be used by the centre’s doctors and employees to travel and get necessary training, and to attend medical conferences.
Mr Aydin said: “We highly appreciate KHCF for making such an effort in changing people’s lives and giving them hope. Being healthy is a blessing; however, for the cancer patients, KHCF is a bigger blessing for them, their parents and their loved ones as well.”
He added: “As the national carrier of Jordan, and as a part of this community, Royal Jordanian is very proud to support the mission of KHCF and considers it a duty towards Jordan, and being involved in our society is a must.”
He said that RJ will always be there for the people of Jordan and any good initiatives that help Jordan to be a better and a healthier country.
Ms Qatamish thanked RJ for its continued support to the foundation. She said: “This donation coming from the RJ passengers contributes to raising the morale of the patients and enables them and their companions to travel onboard RJ to visit various countries as part of their treatment programme.”
