Iraqi Airways (Baghdad) on Thursday (March 26) returned to the European Union after 19 years. The airline scheduled a weekly Baghdad-Athens-Stockholm (Arlanda) flight. However the flight was actually operated by Seagle Air’s Boeing 737-33A OM-HLB (msn 25011). The flag carrier was banned by an international embargo after Iraq invaded Kuwait in August 1990. The company plans to add scheduled flights to Germany as well as to Bahrain, Doha and destinations in India.
