Flights between Baghdad and Damascus will resume Saturday after an eight-year hiatus, Iraqi Airways said Thursday, ONA reports quoting Anadolu Agency. 

The flights will take place once-a-week, Iraqi Airways spokesman Leys Ruabayi said in statement.

The large number of Iraqi nationals in Syria make the flights important, Ruabayi said.

Syria hailed announcement in a written statement from its transportation ministry.

The last flight from Baghdad to Damascus was in December 2011.
