It's been quiet for awhile with regard to it's status.
Assuming that they are not operating regularly scheduled flights, does anyone know the condition and/or location of their current equipment, and whterh or not their overseas ticket/sales offices are operational?

Seem the A320 fleet remains active and that they continue a limited regional operation.

In the last two days Syrian has operated schedules services to Cairo Latakia and Dubai and have used three differing A320s.
YK-AKC, D and E have been seen on FR24 over Jordan The Gulf and the Red Sea

They are also frequenting Vnukova and Istanbul regularly.

Just on a side note- not wanting to hijack the post.
RJ now fly avoiding Syrian airspace increasing Amman-Beirut-Amman to nearly 2 hours per sector from 50 minutes.
The route goes into Israeli airspace and then Egyptian before heading towards Lebanon.
MEA have also been asked to stop overflying Syrian airspace as well due to safety concerns

Wrong it doesn't enter Israeli airspace at any point.

That airspace is quite complex for political reasons

There is a sort of unofficial agreement around the Airspace that borders Eilat/Aqaba/Taba and HaqI

Currently traffic from Israel to Jo'burg Nairobi and India enters the Red Sea at 29,000 ft or below and tracks along the Egyptian edge toward Sharm'.They then fly down towards Djibouti.
Over Djibouti they increase height to cruise 32-35,000 ft and track across Ethiopia into Africa or turn Sharpe left well south of Yemen into the Indian Ocean.

Traffic from Saudi/UAE cross Haql at 33,000 feet into/out of Egypt and across Sinai.

Traffic for Jordan enters/leaves over Aqaba at 31,000 ft towards either Saudi or Egypt

For Royal Jordanian the Beirut operation avoiding Syria is a major inconvenience (Especially as Syrian skys remain open !), however Saudia also use a similar track over Sinai and out over the Med' into international airspace remaining clear of Israeli Airspace.

What with Cyprus Airways excluded from Turkish Airspace, Lebanon not accepting traffic handover from Israel and El-Al certainly not accepted into Saudi Airspace the region is pretty complex.

Yet RJ flights from Europe and the US and even Turkey can and do transit Israel on a daily basis.

Syrian Air also uses A320 I think to Doha although not daily.

Is it the same for Armenian/Azeri & Turkish flights through each other's airspace?

How are they still allowed to land at IST? I thought they were blocking their flights....

I have seen them fly into Algiers quite often, usually in late afternoon/evening.

5 A320s are currently active, with the 6th (YK-AKF) remaining grounded since it's incident.

I'm not so sure if the ATRs are flying or not?
