Flydubai to operate flights to Sulaimaniyah

Posted 26 April 2018 · Add Comment

Fydubai has announced that flights to Sulaimaniyah, Iraq, will resume from 10 May 2018.

The carrier now operates to five points in Iraq including Baghdad, Basra, Erbil and Najaf. The decision to relaunch the flights was taken following the Iraqi authorities’ announcement that that the airport reopened in March 2018.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of Flydubai, said: " We are pleased to see the direct air links between the UAE and Sulaimaniyah return after three years of suspension. flydubai first operated to the Kurdish city in 2010 and we have seen over the years the positive demand from the region. We look forward to further strengthening our network in Iraq, a key market that has been witnessing a rise in investment, trade and tourism.”

Sulaymaniyah's economy today relies on tourism, agriculture and a rising number of SMEs, most of which are involved in the building trade. The city is also home to the second biggest museum after the national museum in Baghdad, and hosts a number of Kurdish and ancient Persian artefacts dating back to 1792–1750 BC.
