A state information company is quoting the CEO of Qatar Airways as saying his airline will proceed to fly to Irbil “so long as its airspace stays open and there are not any safety points.”
That is in line with a late Wednesday night time report by the state-run Qatar Information Company. It quoted CEO Akbar al-Baker as making the feedback at a tourism occasion in Doha.
Qatar Airways is the one considered one of three main lengthy-haul Gulf carriers to fly into Irbil.
Iraq’s Transport Ministry ordered worldwide airlines to halt service to Irbil, the Kurdish regional capital, and Sulaimaniyah, its second metropolis, starting Friday night. That is resulting from tensions over an independence referendum held this week in Iraq’s Kurdish area and disputed territories.
Low-value service FlyDubai says it’s halting flights from Saturday.
