EU bans Fly Baghdad from the airspace

The airspace of the European Union will be taboo for the airline Fly Baghdad in the future because the carrier has been placed on the so-called black list.

As a result, the Iraqi company will no longer be allowed to offer flights to airports in the Union territory in the future. Even mere overflights are no longer possible. The background is that the European Union has massive security concerns. Time and again, individual airlines or even all airlines from entire countries make it onto this black list.

Fly Baghdad may continue to offer flights to the EU under certain circumstances. This is the case if you do not fly yourself, but use a wet lease provider who is not on the blacklist. This exact constellation occurs again and again when listed airlines want to maintain their commercially important EU connections despite the ban. ACMI providers based in the Union often come to additional flight orders.
