Lufthansa Consulting has been given a wide-ranging contract by the government of Iraq to help transform the country's civil aviation.


The German headquartered firm and the Iraq government have had a long-term relationship but this latest agreement is set to make significant change to the industry in Iraq.
The country’s ministry of transport signed the comprehensive agreement for a long-term strategic advisory and implementation project that will focus on restructuring the national carrier Iraqi Airways and the civil aviation authority (ICAA) and on optimising Iraq’s airports.
Lufthansa Consulting said tonight that this latest contract aims to implement the vision of the Ministry of Transport
• to strengthen the ICAA in accordance with international standards and best practices
• to enable Iraqi Airways to become a leading carrier in the Middle East
• to provide a global network for the Iraqi people and the international market
• to transform Baghdad International Airport into a hub serving three continents.
Iraq’s Minister of Transport, H.E. Kadoum Finjan Al-Hamami, said: “This contract reflects the continuity of a long-lasting relationship between Iraq and Germany.”
Dr. Andreas Jahnke, managing director of Lufthansa Consulting said the company was proud to be chosen as an implementer and strategic advisor to the Iraqi Minister of Transport
“With our international expertise acquired over 40 years as an aviation consultancy and our commitment to integrity and compliance with international standards, we are well equipped to support the Iraqi authorities and institutions in enhancing the situation in the interests of
the people of Iraq,” he said
The German management consulting company has been active in Iraq since 2008 and has conducted several airport and airline projects in the country.
