Iraq: Scheduled Flights

Volume 713: debated on Wednesday 21 October 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there are any scheduled direct flights from the United Kingdom to Baghdad; and, if not, whether they will consult the Government of Iraq in order to instigate such flights from the United Kingdom or elsewhere in western Europe. [HL5666]

There are currently no such flights, but my department negotiated a new bilateral air services agreement with Iraq in May. This agreement will pave the way for the resumption of scheduled direct flights in the future.
