  • Published by Vedat

Qatar Airways announced plans to launch scheduled flights to a further two destinations in the Republic of Iraq from this summer.

qatar-airwaysThe addition of the port city of Basra in southern Iraq and Sulaymaniyah in the northern part of the country will take to five the number of destinations served by the airline across the Republic.

Flights to Basra are due to begin on June 3 with Sulaymaniyah starting on August 20. Both destinations will be served four-times-a-week non-stop from the airline’s hub in Doha, capital of the State of Qatar.

Qatar Airways began operations to Iraq last summer with flights to the capital Baghdad and Erbil, followed in January this year by new services to Najaf. The airline currently operates 12 flights a week across the three Iraqi cities. The new capacity will take frequency up to 20 weekly services across Iraq.

Fuelled by the reconstruction drive in the country and demand for more air services to Iraq, Qatar Airways is expanding its operations in Iraq – in line with its strategy to enter underserved markets.

Both routes will be operated with an Airbus A320 featuring 144 seats in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in Business Class and 132 in Economy.
