Baghdad-Tehran flights halted

-

AFP: A new passenger jet link between Baghdad and Tehran has been halted until further notice just over a week after an historic opening flight, officials said Monday. TEHRAN, Nov 14 (AFP) – A new passenger jet link between Baghdad and Tehran has been halted until further notice just over a week after an historic opening flight, officials said Monday.

Iraqi Airways had been supposed to fly into the Iranian capital twice a week but a spokesman for Iran’s state aviation organisation, Reza Jafarzadeh, told AFP that “they faxed us and told us that the route has been postponed.”

Jafarzadeh said the problem was not from the Iranian side, even though Iran was waiting for a response from Iraqi aviation officials to start flights to Baghdad.

The inaugural Iraqi Airways flight to Tehran took place on November 6, the first since the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war in 1980.
