Air Jordan has landed in Hong Kong. No, we're not talking about Michael, but the air service of the Middle Eastern nation. Royal Jordanian Airlines - which once considered naming a flight after the basketball star - made its inaugural trip to Hong Kong on Monday and will now make three trips a week via Bangkok. The carrier celebrated its expansion with a feast full of Jordanian decorations, entertainment and food at the Conrad. Just as our bow-tied leader is touring the Middle East hoping to make an impression, Royal Jordanian's chief executive is here trying to entice Hongkongers to holiday in Jordan. 'All along, we've been concentrating on tourism from the US and the west. The Far East hadn't been on our screen, but now we think Jordan can be an attractive destination for people here,' Samer Majali said. 'Hong Kong is a hub of its region and so is Amman. It's a very safe place and English is widely spoken.' Although he admits there aren't huge business or cultural links, Majali thinks the New Seven Wonders of the World survey has established a connection. 'Our [ancient city of] Petra is in second place and China's Great Wall is in first, so we're connected that way.'
