15 January, 17:30

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, JANUARY 15 - Commercial flights between Aleppo, Syria, and Beirut, Lebanon, two of the most important cities in the Middle East, resumed Friday for the first time after an approximately 10-year interruption due to the war in Syria. Aleppo was directly involved in the conflict from 2012 to 2016, and its airport was inactive for civilian and commercial flights until last year. National Syrian airline Syrianair announced on Friday the first flight to the Lebanese capital in "full respect of anti-Covid measures". A few dozen passengers left Aleppo for Beirut and dozens of others embarked in Beirut to travel to the battered city in northern Syria. Syrianair offers regular flights between Damascus, the Syrian capital, and Beirut, which are less than 200 km apart via direct airspace but divided by an international border that is not always passable due to military, security, and meteorological reasons.(ANSAmed).
