New flights out of Baghdad..

Post by MSYYZ »

Iraq Airways resumed service from Baghdad to Cairo yesterday after nearly 15 years. The airline plans to operate 1 to 2 flights a week at this time and has received clearance to operate up to 4 a week.

Syrianair resumed service from Damascus to Baghdad after a 25 year interruption. The airline stopped operating this route in 1980 when the countries broke off diplomatic ties. A Boeing 727-200 was used for the inaugural flight and Syrianair will operate 3 flights a week. Syrian air is one of the rare Airlines that still fly B727's .

Do they have parachutes instead of life vests under the seats?
