Dubai to Baghdad flight route to open

Dubai, UAE : 11 May 2010

Emirates Airways has announced its decision to open a flight route from Dubai to Baghdad later in the year.  The new route will be one of six that the airline is due to establish.

The decision can be seen as increasing evidence that the once stricken Iraqi capital is now seeing better days, a view brought to bear by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed, the boss of Emirates airways, who said that the ‘time is right’ for the flight route to open and described Iraq as being ‘well on’ the route towards recovery.

Emirate’s rival, Etihad Airways, was the first to open a new flight route to Iraq’s capital in April this year.
