Emirates to restart Baghdad flights from March 1
Dubai-based Emirates will restart passenger flights to Baghdad from March 1, 2015, the airline said in a statement on Tuesday.
The airline suspended operations to the capital on January 26.
Emirates will again operate with six weekly flights to Baghdad, served by an A330-200 aircraft in a 3-class configuration.
Majid Al Mualla, Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, Centre for Emirates said: “The return of services between Dubai and Baghdad follows a comprehensive safety and security review in conjunction with the GCAA. Our flights to Baghdad have provided essential economic links for the capital and it is good news for our customers that we can now restart operations.”
Baghdad has been part of Emirates’ route network since 2011. The airline also operates services to Erbil and Basra.
