Flynas first Saudi airline to fly to Iraq in 27 years

Saudi Arabian budget airline Flynas said on Wednesday it would start flying to Iraq, the first Saudi airline to offer that route in more than 27 years.

The low-cost international airline said in a statement on its website it would start flights to several Iraqi cities in a few weeks.

There have been no flights between Saudi Arabia and Iraq since former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein invaded neighbouring Kuwait in 1990.
