Qatar Airways resumes flights to Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, Iraq

Qatar Airways has resumed service to Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, two important Iraqi destinations.

The airline previously suspended service to both routes in November 2017, per the Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority’s directive to all international carriers at the time.

The airline now operates seven weekly flights to each destination.

From May, the airline will further boost its service to Erbil with double daily flights

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Erbil and Sulaymaniyah have always been two important destinations in the Republic of Iraq, in addition to Baghdad, the capital city, as well as Najaf and Basra.

Qatar Airways serves five destinations in the Republic of Iraq.

The airline first began flights to Erbil in 2012, followed by the capital Baghdad, Najaf, Basra and Sulaymaniyah.
