Najaf Airport saw the landing of the first Kuwaiti passenger plane in 22 years on Tuesday, according to AKnews
The Jazeera Airways Airbus 320 landed at 6pm carrying the ambassadors of the two countries. The low-fare airline is expected to operate two flights per week between the countries.
The flight comes after the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited Kuwait last month to resolve the two-decades long disputes with Kuwait. The PM agreed with Kuwaiti authorities on March 14 that Iraq will pay $500 million in debts to Kuwait.
