Low-cost airline, easyJet, has confirmed a new seasonal route from Manchester Airport to the Red Sea city of Aqaba, Jordan.
Flights and holidays are now on sale from Manchester Airport to King Hussein Aqaba Airport in Jordan. The Middle Eastern city offers year-round sunshine, with access to diving and beaches on the Red Sea, lunar-like deserts of Wadi Rum and the architectural wonders of the ancient city of Petra (pictured).
