Baghdad (Agencies): The Iraqi Ministry of Transport announced on Tuesday that it will resume direct flights to Beijing in May.

After a year of stoppage due to pandemic-related restrictions, the first direct flight from Baghdad International Airport to Beijing Daxing International Airport via Basra International Airport is planned for May 4, according to a statement cited by the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

The statement indicated that the Iraqi Minister of Transport, Razzaq Al-Saadawi, instructed Iraqi Airways earlier to increase the number of its destinations.

Iraqi Airways will operate two flights from Iraq to China every Saturday and Tuesday and two flights from Beijing to Baghdad every Sunday and Wednesday.
