Turkey halts flights to northern Iraq, issues travel warning

Turkey halts flights to northern Iraq
Turkey has issued a new travel warning to Turkish nationals after Turkey’s consulate in Arbil announced that Turkish airline companies will halt flying to northern Iraq after 6:00 p.m. on Friday Sept. 29 until further notice at the request of Baghdad, following a referendum for independence held by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).


In a statement posted on Twitter, the consulate said Iraq’s Civil Aviation Authority had announced the suspension of flights to and from Arbil, the administrative capital of northern Iraq’s Kurdish region, as well as Sulaymaniyah.

“In this case, it will not be possible for Turkish Airlines, Atlas Global, or Pegasus [airlines] to carry out mutual flights from our country to Erbil or Sulaymaniyah,” as of Sept. 29, the statement read.
