SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority announced on Thursday that flights between Iraq and Turkey have been resumed, starting Thursday.

The Iraqi civil aviation authority said in a tweet that there would be seven flights per week between Iraq and Turkey.

“The Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority wishes to clarify to all our esteemed passengers that scheduled flights between Iraq and Turkey have been resumed,” the Iraqi aviation tweeted.

The first flight from Istanbul to Baghdad was scheduled for 09:05 a.m. (local time), according to Baghdad airport’s scheduled arrivals.

Director of Sulaimani international airport Tahir Abdulla told Esta Media Network that it had yet to receive schedules of flights between Turkey and the Kurdistan Region.

Turkey suspended flights to and from Iraq in August as part of measures against the novel coronavirus. It also extended the suspension through September as cases in Iraq continued to rise. The Turkish civil aviation authority extended the ban on October 1 until October 14.
