Iraqi Airways’ First Kuwait Flights since 1990

By John Lee.

Reuters reports that Iraqi Airways will resume flights to Kuwait on Saturday for the first time since the invasion in 1990.

In December, Kuwait Airways dropped legal cases against Iraqi Airways in return for compensation of $500 million.

However, Kuwait’s state-run airline has not resumed flights to Iraq.

Iraqi Airways flies to regional destinations such as Beirut, Dubai, Tehran and Amman, but legal cases made it difficult to start flights to European destinations where it risked its planes being confiscated.

The National Iraqi News Agency reports that Iraqi Airways is preparing to resume flights to London next month.
