Air France Cancels Paris-Damascus Flights

Air France has halted its Monday flight from Paris to Damascus due to continued unrest in Syria, unrest that has been linked to the protests against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  A spokesperson for Air France said that flight AF-570 was cancelled due to the situation in Syria and the return flight scheduled to arrive in Paris has also been cancelled.  There has not yet been a decision made regarding flights later in the week.

The spokesperson for the airline said that Air France is monitoring the situation very closely.  The airline kept its flights to Damascus going since the protests began last March.  Since then more than 7500 people have been killed, an estimate given by the United Nations.  However, on Friday France announced it will be closing its embassy in Syria.
