EgyptAir, Turkish Airlines to resume Erbil flights

Egypt and Turkey's national carriers will resume flights to the administrative capital of northern Iraq's Kurdish region next month, following an almost six-month ban. In a statement on Saturday, Sherif Ezzat, EgyptAir chairman, said the flagship carrier would fly three flights a week to Erbil as of April 13.

On Friday, Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Eksi had announced on Twitter that the country's flag carrier will start regular flights to the Iraqi city on March 26.
