Jordan Aviation was founded in 1998 as a privately owned Jordanian Airline headquartered in Amman, by the ambitious determined entrepreneur Captain Mohammed AL-Khashman. Captain Khashmans vision was realized in October 2000 when JATE obtained its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and commenced operation in November 2000. This realization was appreciated once again as JATE became a member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO).Between the years 2001 and 2003 Jordan Aviation concentrated its activities on charter contracts with the U.N peace keeping troops and now it is their favored vendor. The United Nations acknowledged JATEs efforts by granting it several awards and recognition letters.As a result of declaring Aqaba as an open sky territory and due to the relaxation of the civil air regulations the company relocated its operation to King Hussein International Airport, and launched its first flight from there in 2003. During the years 2005 and 2007 JATE operated programmed charter flights from King Hussein International Airport to destinations in the region like Kuwait, Doha, Alexandria, and Bahrain.JATE's charter routes now cover the Globe.
