Qatar Airways has launched flights to Baghdad,
the capital of Iraq.
The Doha-based airline is operating
four-flights-a-week non-stop on the Baghdad route.
Located on the
banks of the Tigris River, Iraq’s capital is one of the largest
cities in the Middle East.
The move comes just two weeks
after Qatar Airways launched
flights, also four-times-a-week, to
the northern Iraqi city of Erbil.
Cargo traffic bound for
Iraq also will see a boost when Qatar Airways launches a dedicated
weekly freighter service to Erbil, effective 5 July 2012.
the Erbil and Baghdad passenger services are being operated with
an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in
Business Class and 132 in Economy.
The addition of Baghdad takes
Qatar Airways’ global network to 116 destinations worldwide.
