National carrier restarts daily flights to Syria's war-torn second city after clashes near airport caused a temporary shutdown

National carrier EgyptAir resumed flights to the Syrian city of Aleppo on Wednesday after battles between regime and rebel forces near the airport caused a two-day suspension of services.

EgyptAir has two daily return flights to Syria, one to the capital Damascus and the other to the country's commercial hub Aleppo.
 
Wednesday morning's flight to Aleppo departed Cairo with only 20 passengers, but returned completely full, a Cairo airport source told German news agency DPA.
 
Syrian rebels have been battling the army of president Bashar Al-Assad in Aleppo since late July.
