by Middle East Monitor

The Jordanian government has agreed to resume flights to the Syrian capital Damascus as of 3 October after a 10-year hiatus as a result of the Syrian civil war.

Jordan’s Interior Minister Mazen Al-Faraya also announced the reopening of the Jordanian-Syrian border from tomorrow morning to allow for the movement of freight and travellers.

The Ministry of Interior said, in a press statement today, that this decision comes to allow the activation of trade and tourism between the two countries, taking into account the required security and health measures.

Travellers coming from Syria will be required to present a negative PCR test from accredited Syrian laboratories taken no more than 72 hours before their flight, Petra news agency reported, in addition to conducting the examination again upon arrival at Queen Alia International Airport. They will then be asked to isolate until the result of the test is released, Al-Faraya explained.
