First airplane takes off from Aleppo International Airport in 4 years



A Syrian government airplane successfully took off from the Aleppo International Airport on Friday, marking the first time in 4 years that any aircraft has taken off from its runways.

Today’s flight in east Aleppo was a trial attempt before the Syrian government reopens Syria’s second largest airport.

According to a government source, the Aleppo International Airport could be reopened to the public as early as February; however, it is contingent on the military situation in the province.

The reopening of the Aleppo International Airport would give Syria at least four functioning airports that are open to the public.
