Royal Jordanian Airlines plans to acquire up to 23 narrowbody aircraft as part of its five-year turnaround strategy. The aircraft will replace older aircraft, which will be retired.

RJ is in talks with multiple manufacturers, including Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and Bombardier, according to chief executive Stefan Pichler, who added a decision will be made "by the end of September this year.”

Four aircraft will be purchased, with eight to be leased, replacing 19 current narrowbodies.
