Moscow- Russia announced on Thursday resuming civil aviation flights with six new countries, including Syria, after suspending the flights last year within the measures of combating the novel coronavirus pandemic.
According to Russia Today website, resuming the flights came based on the decision of the Russian Committee of Combating Coronavirus Outbreak, which said that from April 1st, flights will be resumed with Cyprus, Germany, Venezuela, Syria, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka.
The Committee added that the decision of resuming flights was made after taking into consideration the epidemiological situation in each of these six countries, as the Committee allowed the resumption of flights with Syria at a rate of one flight a week.
Since last August, Russia has gradually begun air traffic resumption with other countries including Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
