This aim is achieved by following the objectives that the company has placed on transporting passengers (Syrian and International), cargo and post, along with improving services in a number of areas such as receiving, transferring and catering.
By providing services of the highest quality to the Arab and International airlines, SyrianAir can guarantee the utilization of its all its resources, which in turn leads to the goal of every company, making a profit.

Syrian Arab Airlines (SyrianAir) was established during the autumn of 1946, with its first internal and external flights carried out using helicopters. With the dawn of the Syrian Revolution, which took place on the 8th of May 1963, SyrianAir had joined the jet age by acquiring four Super-Caravel jet-engine planes.
The beginning of the Correction Movement, led by the late president Hafez Al-Assad, saw SyrianAir in pace with most major airlines from around the world. This era saw the airline fleet expanding to include new 747-SP Jumbo jets and 727-200 aircraft from Boeing as well as the Russian built TU-154.
The latest addition to the fleet has been six new A320 jets from Airbus of France. SyrianAir currently serves 42 cities in three continents, namely: Europe – Asia – Africa.
