Jordan, following the UAE, will resume flights with Syria
Jordan has announced the restoration of air traffic interrupted with EU-sanctioned Syria. The official statement says that the first passenger flight since 2012 will take place on October 3, 2021.
The resumption of air links with Jordan and the UAE could give impetus to the development of the Syrian air industry and give hope to air cargo carriers. Perhaps among the first air cargo carriers to resume cargo transportation after the lifting of EU sanctions against Syria will be the private Ukrainian airline ZetAvia.
Flights from Jordan to Syria were suspended nine years ago for safety reasons. Jordan announced the resumption of flights to Syria in October this year after the UAE was the first to do so this summer. The restoration of air traffic is expected to boost trade links between the three countries and boost investment in the Syrian economy.
Flights to Damascus International Airport resumed in October 2020 after being suspended for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
