Wuhan is the city where the Chinese corona virus outbreak occurred and governments from around the world have been repatriating citizens residing in the city using national flag carriers.

A Royal Jordanian Boeing 787 aircraft departed from Wuhan Airport on Friday on a direct 11-and-a-half-hour flight to Amman.

The flight landed at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) on Saturday carrying 71 passengers, including a number of Jordanian students.

Chinese medical authorities carried out medical checks for the Jordanian nationals at Wuhan Airport before boarding the aircraft. A Jordanian medical cadre are also on-board the flight.
