Flights between Cairo and Damascus have not yet been affected by the events in Syria.
Cairo International Airport sources said all flights out of Cairo to Syrian cities took off on time. The airport authorities did not receive notification of any cancelled flights.
Syria's defense minister and President Bashar al-Assad's brother-in-law were killed in a Damascus suicide bomb attack carried out by a bodyguard on Wednesday, the most significant attack on Assad's government since the breakout of Syria's 16-month-old rebellion.
