Economy and business: The ban applies to all incoming and outgoing flights, as well as transit through airspace.

This is stated by Al Mamlaka on the messaging service X.

Jordanian aviation authorities say the decision was taken to “safeguard the safety of civil aviation in Jordanian airspace, in light of the escalation of risks in the region”.

Jordan shares a border with Israel, which says it is preparing for an imminent Iranian attack. The country has, among other things, closed down all schools in the coming days due to security concerns.
