Royal Jordanian Airlines has suspended its flights from Amman to the Syrian cities of Damascus and Aleppo, effective 19 July.

The airline cites low demand for travel to Syria, caused by escalating violence between rebel forces and troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Royal Jordanian continues to monitor the situation and will resume flights to Damascus and Aleppo if sufficient demands returns, it adds.

The carrier had operated daily scheduled flights between Amman and the two Syrian cities.
