Turkish Airlines has temporarily suspended its flights to three Iraqi cities due to the ongoing military operation to retake Mosul from the Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] fighters.

“Our Najaf, Suleymaniyah, Basra flights have been suspended temporarily,” Yahya Üstün, the vice president of the flagship carrier’s media relations tweeted.

The move came hours after the carrier canceled its morning flights to Arbil and Baghdad from Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport for one day on October 17.

Üstün said both scheduled flights to Arbil and Baghdad were also continuing.
