  2. Macroeconomic & Corporate News RJ posts positive Q3 results Royal Jordanian (RJ) posted JD31.8 million in net profit in this year’s third quarter against JD12.9 million net profit in the same period last year, RJ’s President/CEO Stefan Pichler said on Tuesday. Pichler was speaking at a press conference on Tuesday during which he presented the national carrier’s turnaround plan which was approved by RJ’s Board of Directors during its session on Monday. RJ’s finances have started to recover since the beginning of June, which marked the start of the company achieving first monthly net profit in 2017, he said. He noted that the net income increased exponentially in the following months, enabling RJ to cover the JD27.8 million losses, incurred in the first five months of the year. According to Pichler, RJ’s strategic objective is to position itself as the number 1 network carrier in the Levant. This is based on three main pillars, foremost of which is sustainable profitability that attracts the capital market and targets increasing operating margins in the coming five years.
