Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11:00pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a great deal to the Middle East, but Royal Jordanian is delivering with a sale from its US gateways to destinations throughout the region — from nonstop flights to its hub in Jordan to one-stop options to Tel Aviv, Dubai, Beirut, Abu Dhabi and beyond.

You can find the cheapest fares for travel from September to March. Unfortunately, Royal Jordanian flights don’t show up on Google Flights, so you’ll need to search directly on an Online Travel Agency (OTA) or a consolidator like Kayak. After finding the dates that work best for you, book with the airline directly to get 5x points using The Platinum Card® from American Express.
