AMMAN — Jordan will switch to summertime (daylight saving time) as of midnight of Thursday/Friday, March 25, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Clocks will be set 60 minutes forward, making the Kingdom three hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+3).

Under a Cabinet decision taken in December 2013, clocks are set back one hour to mark the start of wintertime on the last Friday of October every year, and set forward one hour on the last Friday of March every year to mark the start of summertime, which is applied to utilise the longer daylight hours to save energy.
