Zagrosjet Prepares For Take-Off

The first airline based in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq should begin flying in October. Zagrosjet is a partnership between Turkey’s Atlasjet and Kurdish Zagros Group and will be based in Erbil. Its first flight will be to the Turkish capital of Ankara. This follows a lengthy approval process from the Turkish and Iraqi governments, which only gave the green light to Zagrosjet eight years after its founding in 2005.
