A Syrian passenger plane landed in Baghdad for the first time in the three months.
There were 50 Iraqi passengers in the flight, who flew from Damascus International Airport.
When Syrian rebels mounted attacks in the airport’s locality, the scheduled flights between Damascus and Baghdad came to a halt.
Iraqi Airways officials, speaking on the situation of anonymity, said they were informed by their Syrian counterparts that they would increase scheduled flights to 14 per week.
It was said by the analysts that the recommencement of the flights between Baghdad and Damascus signals improvement in the security situation in Syria, in particular in the capital and its surroundings.
