The Syrian regime was elected as a member of the Air Safety Committee at the conclusion of the meetings of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization (ACAO) in the Moroccan capital, Rabat.

The Syrian Ministry of Transport stated today, Saturday, July 6, on its Facebook page that the Air Safety Committee is considered one of the most important committees of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization.

The ministry noted that Syria’s election came during the General Assembly meetings of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization at the ministerial level, held in its 28th regular session in Rabat.

The election of the Syrian regime as a member of the Air Safety Committee comes after it regained its seat in the 28th session of the General Assembly of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization, after 12 years of suspension of its participation.

The Director-General of Syrian Civil Aviation, Bassam Mansour, stressed the importance of participation after many years of interruption due to the “crisis” and the economic sanctions imposed on Syria, as mentioned by the Russian Sputnik agency on Friday, July 5.

Mansour pointed out that the Arab Civil Aviation Organization, affiliated with the Arab League, informed the Syrian side about the full return of its activities and events, noting that this will prompt Arab countries to activate flights to Damascus and encourage many airlines to cross Syrian airspace.

The Director of Syrian Civil Aviation noted that there will be flights with many Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq, the UAE, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, and Sudan, indicating that civil aviation flights between Damascus and the Greek capital, Athens, have been operated, in addition to some flights from Syria to Guangzhou in China, Russia, and Iran.

Mansour added that Syria must provide all cooperation and facilities to Arab airlines wishing to return to Syrian airspace, whether for crossing or landing, and work to translate recommendations and decisions on the ground in a way that serves Arab aspirations that benefit the work of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization.

The General Assembly meetings of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization discussed the return of airlines to using Syrian airspace for transit and landing at Syrian airports.

The Syrian civil aviation fleet includes 4 planes from Cham Wings Airlines and 5 planes from Syrian Airlines, all in “good and safe condition,” while a private airline company has been granted a license and is awaiting the start of its operations in the coming weeks, according to the local Dam Press site.
