Erbil International Airport






IRAQI KURDISTAN. Noor Kurdistan for Aviation, the operator of the existing airport in Erbil and of the new international airport under construction, has signed a management agreement with Phoenicia Erbil (Off Shore) SAL, to manage and operate all of the Arrivals and Departures retail sales areas at both locations.

The ten-year contract covers both duty paid and duty free sales.

Phoenicia Erbil (Off Shore) SAL is the newly established subsidiary of long-established duty free retailer Phoenicia International Holding, best known for its acclaimed duty free cigars operation at Beirut International Airport.

Phoenicia Managing Director Walid Saleh told The Moodie Report: “The existing Erbil International airport is currently serving around 500,000 passengers per year coming from various European & Middle Eastern destinations, including Vienna, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Amman, Beirut, Dubai and Tehran.”

Duty free will form a core element of the new airport
The shops cover 750sq m of retail space across both Arrivals and Departures. Duty free sales will be offered to diplomatic delegations as well.

The major categories to be offered include liquor, tobacco, cigars, fragrances, cosmetics, confectionery and electronics.

The launch of the operation is expected by the beginning of September, Saleh said.

It is an unfinished mosque, probably not going to look the same, the outer domes both number 8, however most likely not going to be important, might never be finished or might just be completed as is.

Baghdad Greets First European Passenger Flight in 18 Years



The first passenger flight from Europe in 18 years landed at Baghdad International Airport early this month when a Swedish charter aircraft touched down.

The Nordic Leisure airliner brought in 150 people, most of them Iraqis, resuming air links between Iraq and Europe for the first time since the United Nations imposed sanctions on Iraq after Saddam Hussein’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

More international flights are expected in the coming days, including one from Hong Kong, Iraqi Transport Minister Amer Ismail told reporters at the airport.

The pilot waved the Swedish flag as he was bringing the MD-83 (McDonnell Douglas) plane to halt on the tarmac of the airport.

Late last month, Air France-KLM and Iraq’s Transport Ministry signed a preliminary accord which will see Iraqi Airways taking off for European destinations and Baghdad airport being renovated.

In the aftermath of the 1991 Gulf War, the state-owned Iraqi Airways was hit hard by UN sanctions imposed against Iraq and its service declined rapidly.

After the invasion in 2003, the airline slowly resumed flights and today the national carrier flies to the regional capitals and major cities of Amman, Beirut, Teheran, Cairo, Istanbul, Damascus and Dubai.

The Iraqi government in May 2008 ordered 30 Boeing 737 commercial airplanes in an agreement worth up to 2.2 billion dollars.

Al-Mustansiriya University to train students for IC3

Iraq’s Al-Mustansiriya University has signed an agreement with US certification provider Certiport, to deliver the Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3) to its students.

The agreement, which was signed in London yesterday, aims to certify around 19,000 students at the Baghdad University in the IC3.

The IC3 is intended as a foundation course in core computing and Internet skills for all types of employment. The certification covers operating systems, networks, applications and the Internet.

Certiport will initially train ten lecturers from the university, who will then implement curriculum tools to train the students.

David Saedi, president and CEO of Certiport said: “Al-Mustansiriya University continues to demonstrate the leadership necessary in Iraqi higher education to prepare Baghdad and the nation as a whole to be globally competitive in the new economy.”
