Iraqi Airways is launching service to Baghdad and Erbil. They will fly on Wednesdays to Baghdad and on Sundays to Erbil, with an Airbus 320 serving both routes.
As a result, Stockholm Arlanda now has a number of airlines flying to the three Iraqi destinations Baghdad, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah:
- Baghdad: Iraqi Airways, Hermes Airlines has flown there sporadically, Small Planet Airlines is launching service in the winter timetable.
- Erbil: Iraqi Airways, Germania, Small Planet and ZagrosJet; Hermes is launching service in the winter timetable.
- Sulaymaniyah: Germania, Small Planet and Hermes.
Many people in Stockholm and elsewhere in Sweden come from a Kurdish or Iraqi background, and it will now be easier for them to get to Iraq and see relatives, friends and business contacts.
