Flights from Kuwait to Iraq Resume After 20 Years

Jazeera Airways or Kuwait has received approval from Iraq to resume flights to Najaf and Baghdad after more than 20 years of no flights between the neighboring countries.  The head of Iraq’s civil aviation authority, Nasser Hussein Bandar, said that the agreement was made yesterday for the airline to begin flights between the two countries once again.  The airline has asked to be allowed four flights per week to each of Baghdad and Najaf, which is in central Iraq.

Karim al-Nuri, an adviser to Iraq’s transport minister, has confirmed the agreement and said that this is a big step in resolving issues between the two countries, including border disputes.  Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, which was the cause of the flight suspension between the two countries.  Iraqi premier Nuri al-Maliki visited Kuwait in March and Kuwait agreed to a deal of $500 million, which would end a debt dispute that has lasted for decades.
