The capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Amman is filled with ancient ruins, heritage architecture, fascinating museums and delicious cuisine. You can fly from Houston, TX to Amman in under 18 hours. George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is located 23 miles north of Houston just east of Interstate 45. The airport is accessible by car, shuttle van and Metropolitan Transit Authority bus service.
In addition to historic souks, points of interest in Amman include the Roman-era citadel, forum and amphitheater. Other prominent city attractions include the Nymphaeum Archaeological Site, the Duke s Diwan stone townhouse and the colorful Rainbow Street promenade. Institutions like the Jordan Archaeological Museum, the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Art and the Jordan Museum celebrate the city s rich culture.
When you fly from Houston to Amman, you will land at Queen Alia International Airport (AMM), which is located approximately 20 miles south of the city. Amman features a semi-arid climate that produces summer highs that can climb above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and average winter lows in the upper 30s. Jordanian cuisine includes traditional dishes like falafel, roasted freekeh and zarb, a Bedouin pit-style barbecue. Amman hosts several annual events, including a jazz festival and the Hakaya Cultural Project, which uses storytelling to foster positive social change.
As you can't fly straight from Houston, TX Airport (IAH-George Bush Intercontinental) to Amman Airport (AMM-Queen Alia Intl.), a flight with just one stopover is the next best thing. Emirates, American Airlines and Turkish Airlines are reputable airlines that operate on this route.
With a minimum flight duration of 13 hours and 28 minutes, you'll want to be as comfortable as possible. Racked up some extra air miles? This might be a good opportunity to upgrade to a seat with more room on your Houston to Amman journey.
