MEA Suspends Flights to Iraq’s Erbil

Iraq’s Kurdistan vote for independence has resulted in additional than 92% of voters saying “Sure” and the Iraqi authorities don’t appear too blissful about it. They’ve already ordered the nation’s Kurdish space to give up management of its worldwide airports and requested from the Lebanese & Egyptian authorities to halt flights to Erbil, Kurdistan’s capital.

MEA has complied and its chairman has confirmed “the suspension of all flights to and from Arbil from Friday, upon the request of the Iraqi aviation authorities for the halt of all worldwide fights to and from the airport.”

That is clearly unhealthy information for Lebanese companies in Erbil however MEA has assured it will work to make sure Lebanese residents may go away Iraqi Kurdistan by means of different Iraqi airports.
