Iraqi Airways, which just last week started services from Sulaymaniyah to Manchester (MAN), has linked the northern UK city to Erbil (EBL) this week, starting on 18 March. In addition, on 19 March, the flag carrier commenced flights to Yerevan (EVN) from the capital and largest city in Kurdistan region of Iraq. While the UK route will be operated by Iraqi Airways’ 737-800s, the service to the Armenian capital city will be flown by its 86-seat CRJ 900s. Both city pairs are flown weekly (Manchester – Wednesdays; Yerevan – Thursdays) and will face no direct competition.
