Qatar Airways begins flights to Baghdad

Qatar Airways has launched flights from Doha to Baghdad, a month after launching services to Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, Gulf Times has reported. "This flight is the first flight between Doha and Baghdad since the invasion of Kuwait, 22 years ago," said Iraq's transport minister Karim al-Nuri. The airline launched last month services to the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, Erbil, and there will now be four flights per week between Doha and Baghdad, and a similar number between the Qatari capital and Najaf, Nuri said.
