Syria has opened its skies for the passage of Russian civil aircraft

The Syrian authorities have issued permission to cross the country's airspace for Russian civil aircraft. According to the head of the Syrian civil service aviation Basem Mansour, a reciprocal step is expected from Russia. Syria also asked Russia to provide flight schedules to provide air corridors for Russian aircraft.


The iFly airline, which previously transported clients of one of the tour operators to Egypt, announced on December 15 that it was canceling or rescheduling all its flights in this direction, explaining this step by restrictions imposed by the official Amman on crossing Jordanian airspace by Russian aircraft. Syria was chosen as an alternative to this route.

The Russian civil aviation service has asked the Syrian authorities to allow Russian aircraft to cross its airspace. The Syrian government immediately issued a permit.

The Syrian side assured that it was able to ensure the safety of the overflight of Russian aircraft. Currently, civil aircraft of the airlines of Cyprus, Iraq and the aforementioned Lebanon and Jordan are flying through the skies of Syria to Lebanon and Jordan.

    The Americans shot down a Boeing over Ukraine in 2014, although nothing foreshadowed ...

    Who is aware of the traffic of international flights to Egypt, the Turks fly to us, why don’t we fly through them. It’s clear with Jordan, they pushed through.

      Recently, I flew to Egypt with Aeroflot via Turkey and even, in my opinion, through Cyprus, and in September I flew on our airline to Turkey, though I flew back with the Turks. So everything flies through Turkey.

      Turkey, like Jordan, has banned the passage of aircraft with the so-called dual registration. Our airlines had several hundred aircraft leased and registered in other countries and territories, mainly in Bermuda. After the West imposed sanctions against us in February-March, Bermuda withdrew the airworthiness certificates of more than 700 aircraft of our airlines. In order to be able to continue using them, we introduced a unilateral re-registration of these aircraft in Russia, but many countries do not recognize it and prohibit these aircraft from flying through their airspace.
      Some of our major airlines, like Aeroflot, have planes that were originally registered in Russia or they managed to re-register them according to accepted international rules, so they can fly through Turkey, Jordan, etc., but for example, the aforementioned iFly has all the planes with this "double" registration and they are not allowed.

    Even little Jordan is "swollen", look. And over Syria, yes, it’s dumb to fly. My opinion is that now I would generally refuse to fly in the direction of the Middle East, Europe and North Africa to the heap. There is no limit to the meanness of our "partners".

    With all due respect to the Syrians, but is it worth the risk knowing that there are enemies around.

      It's not worth the risk. The Jews or the Americans, all sorts of Turkomans will set you up, not everything is going smoothly with the Kurds, you never know enemies, the Russian civilian plane will fill up for joy.

    Nice to read lines like this.
    This is the attitude towards Russia should be around the world. At least we should strive for it.
    And not because Russia is weak, because Russia is respected.

    Agree . A couple of Turkish F-16s and a khan will emerge from behind the mountains with everyone
    passengers and crew. Like the Su-24 in 2015.
