First Direct Flight from Istanbul to Najaf

Posted on 06 July 2011.

Turkish Airlines operated its first direct flight from Istanbul to Najaf on Tuesday.

AKnews reports that the plane carried Turkish businessmen to the holy city. The airline will operate three flights from Istanbul to Najaf every week with plans to increase the number of flights gradually to reach 7 flights per week.

Head of Najaf provincial council Faid Kadhim Noun, said: “The operation of the flight between Istanbul and Najaf means a lot for the city because Najaf with its historical, religious and archeological aspects will be connected to Turkey and this will also mean the opening of a gateway to Europe.”

Currently, the company operates flights to three other destinations in Iraq: Baghdad, Sulaimaniyah and Erbil.

“Najaf will not be the final destination for us in Iraq, just as it was not the first,” said Turkish Airline’s director Hamit Tubcu in a joint press conference with the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad and the head of the provincial council of Najaf.

The new route is expected to increase the flow of tourists and Shia pilgrims to the city – home to the shrine of Imam Ali, Prophet Mohammed’s cousin and a figure regarded by Shia Muslims as the first Imam.

Noun used the opportunity to also call on Turkish investors and businessmen to visit Najaf to check out the investment opportunities there. Turkish businesses are having an increasing influence in Iraq, with trade between the two countries second only to Iraq’s trade with Iran.

Emirates to launch Baghdad route
Baghdad: Wed, 12 Oct 2011

Emirates will launch its Dubai-Baghdad route on November 13, making the Iraqi capital its 115th international destination.

Emirates held a gala dinner in Baghdad last night (October 11) to mark the occasion.

“Baghdad has been on our wish list for some time and we are now ready for our launch on the 13th November,” said Ahmed Khoory, Emirates senior vice president, Commercial Operations Gulf, Middle East and Iran.

“The excellent turnout at this evening’s reception is indicative of how positively Emirates is perceived in the local market. With much of the country’s manufacturing, finance and commerce concentrated in and around Baghdad, our new service will play a central role in linking the city with the broader business community.”

The launch of Baghdad will be Emirates’ second gateway into Iraq after Basra, which started in February this year.

“Basra has been a very successful first foray into Iraq for Emirates. Our passenger loads have been consistently strong and we are confident that these positive booking numbers will also be reflected in our forthcoming Baghdad operation,” added Khoory.

Emirates will operate an Airbus 330 between Dubai and Baghdad, in a three-class configuration. EK941 will depart Dubai at 07:55am touching down at Baghdad International Airport at 09:40am the same day. At 11:35am, return flight EK942 will depart Baghdad arriving in Dubai at 14:55pm the same day.

Flydubai Flying to Baghdad and Najaf in the New Year

Dubai: Flydubai has added two additional Iraqi destinations to its network with flights to Baghdad and Najaf due to start in the New Year.

The new routes bring flydubai's network to 48 destinations across 27 countries in the Gulf, Middle East, Africa, Indian Sub-Continent, Asia and the fringes of Europe.

Flydubai launched services to Iraq in 2010, serving Arbil and Sulaimaniyah, providing a huge impetus to travel between the UAE and Iraq, while promoting trade ties between the two countries. The new routes mean flydubai now offers 14 flights a week to Iraq.

Flights to the two destinations will start in the New Year, allowing travellers from the UAE to take advantage of low-cost fares to two of Iraq's commercial hubs.

The four-times weekly flights to Baghdad will begin on January 17, with the three times a week service to Najaf commencing on January 29.

Flydubai CEO Gaith Al Gaith said: "The UAE is currently one of Iraq's top trading partners with non-oil trade between the two countries growing 32.6 per cent to Dh26.4 billion, compared to 2008. Our flights to Arbil and Sulaimaniyah encouraged business travel and we aim to mirror that success by connecting two of Iraq's main commercial and business centres to the UAE. In addition to cultural authenticity, Iraq has a wealth of investment opportunities across sectors such as oil and gas, agriculture and we hope the routes will stimulate UAE-based and international business to explore these opportunities."

Flights to Baghdad will operate four times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from January 17. One way fares from Dubai to Baghdad start at Dh1,230, with fares from Baghdad to Dubai starting at $315

Emirates is increasing its capacity to Baghdad by 75 per cent with a daily service from next month, while flydubai's inaugural flight to Baghdad was on Tuesday. Flydubai will fly to Baghdad four times weekly.

"There is a significant demand for travel in and out of Baghdad, and this new daily service offers a significant boost to this strategically important route for Emirates," said Ahmed Khoory, the senior vice president at Emirates for the Gulf, the Middle East and Iran.

The flights to the Iraqi capital "will help to boost business and trade, and reinforce existing ties between the two countries", said Ghaith Al Ghaith, the chief executive of flydubai. The budget carrier already has flights to Erbil and Sulaymaniyah in Iraqi Kurdistan. Flydubai service to Najafis scheduled to start on January 29.

"In particular, the UAE has a significant interest in promoting trade and investment with Iraq, as highlighted by the latest trade figures released by the Iraqi embassy," Emirates said.

"According to the Iraqi embassy, the volume of investments of UAE companies in Iraq reached US$3 billion [Dh11.02bn] by the end of 2010 and is expected to rise to $6bn in the coming years." As well as the Baghdad flights, Emirates operates a four-times-weekly service to Basra and has offices in Basra and Baghdad.

flydubai starts flights to Baghdad

By ARAB NEWS
Published: Jan 19, 2012 00:22

flydubai, Dubai’s pioneering low cost airline, added to its expanding network yesterday with the start of flights to Baghdad, Iraq.

flydubai’s inaugural flight, FZ215, took off from Dubai Terminal 2 at 1355hrs on Tuesday, landing at Baghdad International Airport at 1545hrs. In addition to Arbil and Sulaimaniyah, the four-times weekly flight to Baghdad increases flydubai’s presence in Iraq to three cities. Flights to Najaf, flydubai’s fourth Iraqi point, will start on Sunday, Jan. 29.

flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al-Ghaith, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to the Iraqi authorities. Thanks to their strong support, flydubai now serves three major cities in Iraq, with another, Najaf, to follow later this month. Our new route will provide travelers between Baghdad and Dubai a quality, affordable option that will help to boost business and trade, and reinforce existing ties between the two countries.”

According to Iraqi Government figures, UAE and Iraq trade is currently worth $6.5 billion, up from $5 billion in 2009 and predicted to rise to $7 billion in 2012. The commercial exchange between the UAE and Iraq includes all industrial, agricultural, food and service products, with around 24 Emirati companies currently operating in Iraq in the investment, housing and food processing sectors. The Iraqi capital city Baghdad has undergone major reconstruction in recent years and is developing key industries such as energy, construction, retail and agriculture with the help of foreign investment and expertise. As a consequence, business travel is expected to be the main revenue generator for flydubai’s new Baghdad route.

20 years after the first Gulf War, a direct flight to Iraq from India

Geeta Gupta : New Delhi, Thu Feb 09 2012, 03:18 hrs


Twenty years after Air India scrapped direct flights to Iraq at the time of the first Gulf War, the two countries are set to be connected once again.

India’s civil aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), has approved a proposal by Iraq’s national carrier Iraqi Airways to have four flights every week to Baghdad and back — two each from Delhi and Mumbai. “The first flight will be launched on February 12,” Bharat Bhushan, Director General of Civil Aviation, told The Indian Express.

Senior ministry officials said that talks between them and Iraqi Airways have been on for some time. Terming it a big step, a senior ministry official said: “We are keen on direct flights not just to Baghdad, but also to Karbala.”

Several families of Indian origin are settled in Iraq, mainly in the holy cities of Basra, Najaf and Karbala. Thousands of Indians go every year to visit the Islamic pilgrimage shrines of Imam Hussein and Imam Abbas.

As per ministry of external affairs figures, many Indian workers from neighbouring countries have been employed by foreign contractors for reconstruction work all over the country.

The people-to-people contacts between India and Iraq have been on the rise, as also academic linkages, particularly in the fields of medicine and engineering. More than 28,000 Iraqis visited India in 2010 for medical treatment, education and tourism. India offers 50 scholarships to Iraqi students for higher studies in India under schemes of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations.

Iraq is the third largest supplier of crude to India; Indian Oil Corporation is the largest importer. The IOC provides training to Iraqi officials on various subjects related to the downstream oil sector.

A bilateral air services agreement between India and Iraq was first signed in 1955. On April 6, 1976, Air India first launched a weekly Boeing 707 service to Baghdad via Dhahran and Kuwait.

Etihad launches flights to Basra, Iraq
14:17 February 28, 2012

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, will launch flights to Basra in southern Iraq from mid-April.

Basra becomes the 84th destination in the carrier’s global network and the third city it flies to in Iraq. Etihad Airways already operates services to the capital, Baghdad, and Erbil, in the country’s north.

“Iraq’s surging economy represents a good opportunity to add even greater depth to our schedule,” Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Hogan, said Tuesday.

“Basra is an important industrial and transport hub but currently has only limited access to air services and we are delighted to be able to help improve these by investing in the local community.”

The new Airbus A320 service, with 16 Pearl Business class seats and 120 seats in Coral Economy class, will operate four times a week from April 15.

The schedule provides both morning and afternoon departures between Abu Dhabi and Basra on the first two and last two days of the working week and has been custom designed to suit expected traffic flows.

Oil and gas represent the backbone of the local economy and major companies rotating staff in and out of Basra have already expressed strong interest in the new flights.

These will also provide seamless connectivity over Abu Dhabi for Etihad Airways flights to Asia, the Indian Subcontinent and Australia.

Etihad Airways began flying to Iraq when it launched a daily service to Baghdad in late April 2010, with Erbil added to the network five weeks later.

Last year more than 100,000 passengers were carried between Abu Dhabi and these two cities, with the Baghdad route enjoying strong growth.

Qatar Airways launches flights to Erbil and Baghdad
10/03/2012 09:37
ERBIL, March 10 - Qatar Airways is set to add Erbil and Baghdad to its list of international destinations served directly from its Doha-based hub.

Erbil and Baghdad will be introduced to the carrier’s Middle East network in May and June respectively.

Both cities will be served four times a week using the carrier's Airbus A320.

Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker unveiled the expansion programme at ITB Berlin, a travel show hosted in the German capital last week.

“Today’s announcement reflects the importance Qatar Airways places on expanding its portfolio of passenger and cargo destinations, and offer more frequency on existing routes to provide more choice, more flexibility and more options,” said Baker.

Tanzania, Serbia and Myanmar also feature in the passenger route expansion programme, which begins in May.

News of the past 3 months

Qatar Airways starts flights to Baghdad

(AFP) – 16 hours ago

BAGHDAD — Qatar Airways on Thursday completed its first flight to Baghdad since Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion of Kuwait, a month after launching services to Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, an official said.
Qatar Airways flight QR 442 landed in the Iraqi capital at around 3:40 pm (1240 GMT), an adviser to Iraq's transport minister Karim al-Nuri told AFP.
"This flight is the first flight between Doha and Baghdad since the invasion of Kuwait, 22 years ago," Nuri said.
The airline began services to Arbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, last month, and there will now be four flights per week between Doha and Baghdad, and a similar number between the Qatari capital and the holy Shiite city of Najaf, Nuri said.
Iraq became a regional and international pariah following its invasion of the neighbouring emirate of Kuwait, and was hit by waves of violence in the years after the 2003 US-led invasion of the country.
But with improvements in the security situation, various airlines from the Arab world and elsewhere are now flying to Iraq.

Flydubai to launch Basra flights
Dubai: Thu, 28 Jun 2012

Flydubai, Dubai’s leading low-cost airline, said it has added another Iraqi destination, Basra to its network, with plans to launch four weekly flights to the port city starting from August 8.

Basra joins the capital Baghdad, plus Najaf, Sulaimaniyah, and Erbil, swelling flydubai’s Iraqi route map to five points, one of the most comprehensive networks to Iraq in the region, said a top official.

"We identified Iraq as one of our principal markets in 2010 with the launch of services to Erbil and Sulaimaniyah. This is in line with our commitment to continually identify emerging and underserved destinations," remarked flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith.

The flights FZ229 will depart Dubai Terminal 2 at 8.45am and arrive in Basra International Airport at 9.40am (local time). On return, flight FZ230, will take off from Basra at 10.40am and land in Dubai at 1.25pm.

The return fares from Dubai to Basra start at Dh2,205 ($600) and include one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 7kg, one small laptop bag or handbag plus 20kg of checked baggage in each direction. A seat with extra legroom costs Dh100 extra.

"We hope that our expanding network will further promote travel between the UAE and Iraq, not only for the business community but also for the thousands of Iraqi expatriates residing in the UAE," he noted.

He emphasised the rising prospects between the UAE and Iraq, which saw trade exchange between the two nations account for more han $4.5 billion in 2011.

Iraq’s ongoing reconstruction work and the development of sectors such as energy, construction, retail, and agriculture indicate that the main demand for the new route will be business traffic. Besides its commercial interests, Iraq is also home to a number of significant historical and religious sites.

Basra is Iraq’s main port, helping shipping, logistics, and transport evolve into major industries. The oil and gas sector also maintains a significant presence in the city with most of Iraq’s oil exports being shipped from the Al Basrah Oil Terminal.
