Iraqi minister of transport told Al-Sabah that his ministry feels optimistic about getting the Iraqi Airways aircrafts back, in reference to the aircrafts that had been held by some countries since the gulf war in 1991.

The minister explained that Iran has promised to release the aircrafts soon while there are some positive signs of a similar resolution coming from the Kuwaiti authorities.

This-when happens-will allow the Iraqi Airways to expand its business and reactivate many of the commercial flight-lines that have been suspended for about 15 years.

However there are no news about other Aircrafts that are still held by the authorities in Jordan and Tunesia, nor about some 100 military aircrafts that were sent By Saddam to Iran in 1991.
