Atlasglobal flight KK 6292 (operated by A320 UR-AJA – according to Flightradar24) marked the resumption of services by the airline from Istanbul Ataturk to Najaf in Iraq. As a result, the carrier now offers a network of four destinations in the Middle Eastern country.
- Atlasglobal has resumed operations to Najaf (NJF) in Iraq on 15 August, a sector which it last served from its Istanbul Atatürk (IST) base in December 2015 according to OAG schedule data. Flown twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) by the carrier’s A319s and A320s, the 1,709-kilometre sector faces two incumbents – with Turkish Airlines (daily) and Iraqi Airways (four times weekly) providing the competition. As a result of this new route, Atlasglobal now offers four cities in Iraq, with Najaf flights joining existing rotations to Erbil, Baghdad and Sulaymaniyah.
