Syrian Air Boosts Beirut Flights to Cut EU Ban Impact, SANA Says
Syrian Air has increased the number of its flights to Beirut and is running two a week to Jordan to reduce the impact of the European Union’s ban on the company, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said.
The measure is aimed at facilitating the movement of Syrians to Europe, the agency said. Ghaydaa Abd-al-Latif, the company’s director general, told SANA the airline is working with attorneys to prepare a lawsuit against the EU because “it is committed to international laws and has made no violations since the suspension decision.” She said the EU ban has affected 5,400 working families.
