Royal Jordanian has reported a first-half 2011 net loss of JOD39.2 million ($55.5 million), compared to the JOD7.7 million deficit in the year-ago period. Political and social unrest in the region, higher fuel prices and the debt crisis in several European countries contributed to the poor result. Revenue rose slightly by 3.5% year-over-year to JOD303.7 million as the airline flew on a marginal increase in passengers carried from 1.327 million to 1.399 million. The airline was forced to cancel 677 flights and merged another 80 in the period.
