Basra-Istanbul Airway to Open Soon

The Basra-Istanbul airway will be opened early next month, the deputy head of Basra’s investment commission said on Monday.

“Flights will be available between Basra Airport and Turkey,” Jalal Tema al-Nouri told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The step comes following talks with the commercial attaché in the Turkish embassy, Saeed Faeq, Nouri explained.

The Shiite city of Basra lies 590 km south of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
