Ministry of Transport operates a flight to transport 250 Syrian citizens stuck in Erbil, Iraq

The Ministry of Transport announced today that it would operate a flight to evacuate Syrian citizens from the city of Erbil in Iraq within the next few days.

The ministry indicated in a statement today that the flight will transport 250 Syrian citizens stuck in Erbil to Damascus International Airport, calling on those wishing to return to visit the Syrian Aviation Office in Erbil. The ministry added that the flight date would be announced upon completion of the required procedures.

The Ministry of Transport had operated two flights to transport 500 Syrian students stuck in India, the first on the 21st of last month and the second on the 2nd of this month, as part of the government efforts to repatriate the Syrians stuck abroad due to the spread of Corona epidemic.


Since the fourth of last May, Syrian Airlines has began to operate flights to evacuate the Syrian citizens who wish to return to Syria, according to lists registered through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates at embassies and diplomatic missions.
