Russia is discussing with Iraq the resumption of regular air ways after 13-year hiatus, said Rosaviation following the results of last Thursday’s negotiations of the head of Department Alexander Neradko with the Ambassador of Iraq in Russia.

According to the report, the Iraqi airline Iraqi Airways plans from September 2017 to open regular flights from Baghdad to Moscow.

«In the course of the meeting the sides discussed the issues of practical implementation plans to start flying between the two countries. For his part, the head of Federal air transport Agency welcomed the initiative of the Iraqi side, which undoubtedly will contribute to the development of economic ties between Russia and Iraq, as well as to strengthen cooperation in the field of air transport», — stated in the message.
