About Iraqi Airways

Iraqi Airways, known in Arabic as الخطوط الجوية العراقية‎ al-Xuṭūṭ al-Jawwiyyah al-ʿIrāqiyyah, is the flag carrier of Iraq and is headquartered at Baghdad International Airport in Baghdad. Founded in 1945 and commencing operations the following year, it is the second-oldest airline in the Middle East.

The airline is a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization and operates domestic flights within Iraq, as well as regional services to the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

During the 1990s, this airline’s operations were limited due to various factors such as suspensions and No-Fly Zones meaning both international and domestic services were affected and mostly grounded, with limited scheduled services and some Hajj flights permitted. However, after the end of the War in Iraq, the airline announced plans to resume international flights in 2004 with a flight between Baghdad and Amman. The airline also began interline and codeshare agreements with airlines such as Teebah Airlines, Blue Wings and Tor Air.



The Fleet

The fleet for Iraqi Airways is varied, with different models of Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier aircraft. There are plans to develop the current fleet with modern aircraft such as the Boeing Dreamliner, of which they currently have an order of 10.

Iraqi Airways Hub Airport

Baghdad International Airport

Baghdad International Airport is the largest international airport in Iraq, just outside of the country’s capital. The airport was opened in 1982 and was temporarily closed intermittently over the following decades until 2004 when the Iraqi government regained control of it. Plans were announced in 2010 for the expansion of the airport, which is expected to double the capacity to 15 million passengers a year.

This airport is the hub for Iraqi Airways, FlyBaghdad. and, formerly, Al-Naser Airlines. A number of other airlines also fly to this airport, including Iran Air, Mahan Air, Turkish Airlines and flynas.
