Iraqi Kurdistan says Erbil airport resumes freight flights

Erbil International Airport

Baghdad ( Iraqi Kurdistan said cargo flights resumed at Erbil airport after a ban imposed late last year by the Baghdad-based  federal government of Iraq.

Aljournal News website quoted a spokesperson of the Kurdish transport ministry saying in a press statement that commercial freight flights have resumed to and from Erbil International Airport.

Baghdad lifted an embargo on flights to and from Kurdish airports in March. The embargo was imposed right after the autonomous region voted in favor of independence from Iraq in a popular poll in September, a step deemed unconstitutional by the Iraqi government.
