Just wanted to add one piece of good news to what Chrenkoff had already published.
ISHTAR has become the 1st private airlines in Iraq, with one 727 currently working on the line Baghdad-Dubai but with plans to expand its business to include more flight lines after adding more aircrafts.

You all know that commercial flights were suspended from/to Iraq since August 1990 and were resumed only in September of last year.
The Iraqi Airlines Company provides flights only to Amman and Damascus but not Dubai which has become the Middle East's most important trading center and attracts many Iraqi businessmen.
This has encouraged the private sector in Iraq to try this field of investment (Air transport) which had been always controlled by the government.
From today's Al-Sabah.
