Erbil International Airport 2

KRG “could Suspend” Erbil Domestic Flights

A Kurdistan 24 press quoted Talar Faiq, the Director-General of Erbil International Airport (EIA) as saying that the KRG could suspend domestic flights between the Kurdistan Region’s airports and the rest of Iraq due to financial issues and Baghdad’s international flight ban.

“Since the Iraqi government’s ban went into effect late September 2017, Iraqi Airways has not paid for its landings at the EIA [for flights originating from Baghdad and other Iraqi airports],” Faiq said.  “Baghdad owes the EIA an amount of 37 million USD for landing at the airport,” the Director-General added.

The EIA had previously warned that Baghdad’s ongoing embargo on the airports in the Region might lead to the suspension of domestic flights, as the expenditure at the local airports would be higher than the revenues generated.

It would be difficult to handle its $2.3 million monthly expenses which include employee salaries, allowances, fuel, utilities, electricity, cleaning, and maintenance due to decreased income following the international flight ban,” the EIA said in a statement.  “The flight ban also forces the EIA to suspend contracts with French and German companies worth USD 35 million [to renovate and expand the airport],” the statement added.

Provincial Elections set for December

The Iraqi Council of Ministers has reportedly set the 22nd December 2018 as the date for the provincial elections to be held in Iraq.

Previously, the provincial elections were scheduled for before the national elections; however, the fight against the IS as well as the ongoing displacement crisis prevented these from being held earlier.

The vote was originally scheduled to be held on the 16th September 2017, but was later postponed with reports suggesting that they would be held in conjunction with the national elections set for May of this year.

At the beginning of February, however, the Iraqi parliament voted to postpone the provincial elections until December.

Although the date is yet to be ratified in a vote by the Iraqi parliament, the decision to hold the elections on the 22nd December will unlikely draw opposition as most factions are in agreement about this postponement.

There are 447 open seats nationwide for the provincial elections.
