Further airlines granted permission to operate flights to Iraq.
North American Airlines and Continental Airlines have been granted permission to operate passenger services to Iraq.
The US Transportation Department reportedly approved applications filed by the two carriers to operate services between the US and Iraq. The application also covers cargo services. Five other carriers - Air Transport International, Gemini Air Cargo, Evergreen International Airlines, Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo - have also been permitted to operate cargo services to Iraq.
However, it is currently unclear when Iraq's commercial airports will reopen to passenger services.
