After looking at some pictures of their rather diverse fleet of planes, can anyone tell me what their current fleet as well as their future fleet consists of.

NOTE- I do know this topic was discussed before, back in 2002, however I am sure a few planes have left the fleet since then.

It appears their 747SPs are no longer in service.

Sad... but as far as I know, most Europe routes have been A320 for a long time now  Sad

As far as I know the SPs and 727s have been out of service for a while....3 out of the 6 A320s they have are out of service due to lack of spare parts (I saw them parked outside a hanger next to the SPs and 727s a couple of weeks ago)....they do however have at least 1 A320 on lease from a Jordanian carrier, it shows full Syrian colors but has a Jordanian registry.

There are rumors here that they are on the verge of ordering up to 14 Airbus aircraft, and the local media reported last week that a delegation from Airbus was in Damascus to discuss the order.....I guess we can never be sure until the order is signed and officially announced by Airbus.

Don't they operate the Yak's as well? A friend of mine flew on some plane from Damascus to Aleppo, and when I asked her about the flight she told me that all she remembers is that she was praying the whole flight for the plane not to crash  Smile

I know LCA is operated by a 320, they were officially the last airline to operate out of the old terminal here. The flight left at 23:59!

Yes they still operate the Yak42 on domestic routes. Latakia is one city that comes to my mind. Aleppo is usually served by Tu134 and of course I must disagree with your friend. The ride on a Tu134 is a fantastic experience.

The 747SP has been taken of the fleet in mid 2008 I believe. I had the chance to fly it a last time in April 2008 and remember that some technical problems came up shortly after. The withdrawal of the fleet was the result.

Well even though flying on a Tu 134 for me and you would be exciting for ordinary people it must be a rather terrifying experience...  Smile
So what planes they might be getting from Airbus? 320's and 321's ?

Are there any issues such as embargoes preventing RB to procure new parts for its A320's?

What about the large order that was planned some time ago?

The Yak are Yak-40 belonging to Syrian Air Force but in full Syrian Air colors.
Nice small aircraft, very confortable (but no safety cards on board) .

Here is a very short video inside a Tu-134. As you can see, there is not the usual separation between front and rear cabins.
Very confortable too.

That´s right and you get the feeling that fighter pilots are in control. (o: And indeed there are no safety cards. Even on the Tu134 it´s quite rare but I was lucky enough to get one. Anybody interested in a B747SP safety card of Syrianair?
