Jordan's Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission said that there are no current plans to operate flights between Jordan and Syria, state news agency PETRA reported on Sunday.

Jordan's state carrier, Royal Jordanian, said in September it would resume direct flights to Damascus for the first time in nearly a decade.

Flights had been suspended at the start of the conflict in Syria.

The decision announced by Royal Jordanian was said to be part of several steps taken at the end of a two-day ministerial meeting held in Amman between the two countries on boosting trade, investment and transport ties.
