Region: Middle East


The Republic of Iraq is recovering after almost three decades of intermittent conflict, with a number of regional and international carriers having resumed services to the country following years of restricted access.

The country’s main international gateway is Baghdad International Airport, which is also the hub for national carrier Iraqi Airways, one of the Middle East’s oldest airlines. Services between Iraq and Europe resumed in Mar-2013 after a 23 year hiatus. Sulaymaniyah International Airport provides the major access point to the Kurdistan autonomous region, an area of increasing importance to the energy sector.

The Iraq Civil Aviation Authority is the specialist aviation regulator in Iraq. Its activities include airspace policy, flight permissions, safety regulations and economical regulations.
