Sat, Sep. 2, 2017
BAGHDAD - 2 September 2017: Iraqi Transport Minister Kazem Finjan announced Saturday the inauguration of air travel services to Moscow, Kuwait and Tehran, Iraqi Wa'a news agency reported.

Finjan explained that the Iraqi civil aviation and its Russian counterpart reached an agreement to resume flights between Baghdad and Moscow after flights were suspended for about 13 years.

He pointed out that this progress is important as it will allow Iraqi civil aviation to enter European airspace, thus opening up prospects for Iraqis to engage in the fields of trade, tourism, work and medical treatment.

The minister underlined that an air travel service will be launched from Iraqi Basra airport to Kuwait City in the framework of strengthening bilateral relations and facilitating the movement of passengers between the two countries.

In addition, he said his ministry will establish another air travel service from Basra airport to the Iranian capital Tehran to satisfy the desire of Iraqi travelers.
