Syria’s only private air carrier Cham Wings Airlines flew to Tunisia on Thursday for the first time, adding another destination to its growing network.

“The first tourist flight to Tunisia has taken off,” the airline announced in a Twitter post, which featured a cockpit-view video from the runway.

The flight carried 150 passengers to Monastir on Tunisia’s northern coast, Syria’s state news agency SANA said. It cited the airline’s development director, Osama Satea, as saying that regular flights would be scheduled based on demand.

The company was set up in Damascus eleven years ago. Its inaugural flight from the capital’s international airport to Baghdad took place on November 20, 2007.

The air carrier operates flights to Kuwait, Sudan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
