The international flights between Iran and Kurdistan Region will resume on April 27, said Murtaza Abadi, the General Consulate of Islamic Republic of Iran in Erbil.
According to the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA), the high Iranian official has said that two flights would be running on a weekly basis between Tehran and Erbil, as a preliminary stage before adding more flights to the airline’s schedule in the future.
This flight will be the first one after more over six months of a ban on the airports in the Kurdistan Region.
In retaliation to an I referendum held by the Kurdistan Region in September, the federal government imposed a number of sanctions on the region, including banning the international flight.
However, Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi earlier in March issued a decree to lift the international flight ban on the Kurdistan Region airports.
