FAQ: Flights Lyon - Amman

What is the duration of a flight between Lyon and Amman?

More than 3000 kilometres separate the cities of Lyon and Amman in Jordan. You can reach Amman's Queen Alia International Airport from Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS) with an average minimum flight time of 4 hours and 20 minutes. Please note that this duration is indicative, as the actual flight duration may depend on factors such as the date and time, the airline, and weather conditions.

Your destination also directly affects the duration of your journey. The Jet Stream continuously blows from west to east at high altitudes: Lyon to Amman flights typically last around 4 hours and 15 minutes, while Amman to Lyon flights, without the benefit of these tailwinds, take approximately 4 hours and 55 minutes.

Which airlines offer flights between Lyon and Amman?

Royal Jordanian operates two direct weekly flights between Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS) and Amman's Queen Alia International Airport (AMM). As the national airline of Jordan, Royal Jordanian operates numerous domestic and international flights and is a member of the Oneworld alliance (alongside American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia, Japan Airlines, and more).

When is the best time to visit Amman for a stay in Jordan?

Jordan, an enchanting tourist destination, can be visited year-round. In spring and autumn, temperatures are pleasant, neither too hot or too cold. This period is favoured by many travellers who want to explore Amman and the major Jordanian sites like Petra or Jerash. Summer temperatures often exceed 40°C, which may deter some travellers. On the bright side, there's lower tourist traffic, and you'll enjoy tranquillity and attractive rates. Winter temperatures are cooler but still much milder than the winter temperatures in many European countries.

Amman unveils its charms in all seasons, promising you exciting discoveries and unique experiences in spring, summer, autumn, or winter.

When should you book your flight to fly to Amman?

Airlines adjust their fares based on flight occupancy rates, meaning seats are sold at more attractive prices when the plane is still empty! By booking your reservation several weeks or even months in advance, you often get to enjoy more advantageous fares.

Furthermore, the flexibility of your travel dates can open up significant savings opportunities. Prices can vary considerably from one day or week to the next. Don't hesitate to use our flight ticket searching tool to spot the most advantageous offers and finalise your reservation online with ease!
