A Saudi Arabian plane carrying aid to quake-hit Syria landed in second city Aleppo Tuesday, a transport ministry official told AFP.
Planeloads of foreign aid have landed in Syria since a 7.8-magnitude quake struck Syria and Turkey killing more than 35,000 people.
The Saudi plane landed at Aleppo International Airport carrying 35 tons of food aid, state news agency SANA reported.
Two more Saudi planes are scheduled to land Wednesday and Thursday, another transport ministry official, Suleiman Khalil, told AFP.
The last such flight landed in Syria in February 2012.
More than 3,600 people have been killed by the quake in Syria alone.
