Syrianair Fleet Question - TU134 Grounded?

I was imagining that one day I could visit Syria in order to fly on a YAK 40 and a Tupolev 134. I believe they still operate YAK 40 's from DAM to LTK (Latakia) but the Tupolev 134 that last week was operating from DAM to DEZ (Deirezzor) has disappeared from their timetable.

Does anyone know whether that is temporary or whether it reflects a permanent removal of the aircraft from their active fleet?
Thanks for any information.

DGE

Their last Tu-134 in service is YK-AYE.
It was previously operated on the domestic DAM-ALP route, but has been replaced by an A320.
Officially still with RB.

The last Yak 40 (YK-AQB) operates the services between DAM and LTK, along with a B727 on certain days.

Worth a trip, Syria is a fascinating country. I've flown on their 727s a few times, most memorably over Berlin, we did a low pass at both Tegel and Templehof (flight originated and ended at SXF). Aircraft interiors look shabby (but with loads of character and 70s charm) but the machines fly like birds.

Never flown on a Yak 40. I would book yer trip asap, the 727s are going nearly as fast as the 134s.



fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

Thank you both, FlySSC and CedarJet.

I did a bit more research on http://www.amadeus.net and discovered that the TU134 is being deployed on the DAM to KAC (Kameshli) service six times a week. I'm very eager to visit - not just for the airplane rides but to see what sounds like a very interesting country. By the way, Cedarjet, I've been on a 727 probably hundreds of times. It feels like a good solid aircraft. Now for something completely different  Smile

Regards to you both.

The Yak-40 belong to Syrian Air Force but are in full Syrian Air old colors.
The Tu-134 is in "new" Syrian Air colors.
Both of them are confortable. As you can see on the photo, the Tu-134 has no cabin separation as most of them have.

Yes, I know. One has to do a bit of sleuthing to find the entire fleet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrian_Arab_Airlines is very helpful. Also, Syrianair doesn't have a route map on http://www.airlineroutemaps.com

SIBILLE, Thanks very much for the great interior photos of the two aircraft!
