The civil aviation authority announced that there is no suspension of flights in the country, while confirming that it implements all decisions issued by the higher authorities.
The authority’s spokesman, Jihad Al-Diwan, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that “the aviation authority is an executive institution and implements all decisions issued by the higher authorities,” noting that “the Supreme Committee for National Health and Safety issued several decisions, including instructing departing and arriving travelers and after the issuance of the book. Officially, the Iraqi Aviation Authority will notify the companies of presenting the international vaccination card for departures and arrivals with a (PCR) examination (72) hours before the flight.
He stressed that "there is no suspension of flights in accordance with the instructions and directives."
The Supreme Committee for Health and Safety issued, earlier, its decisions regarding the epidemiological situation in Iraq, while it decided to cancel the exception of pilgrims from the requirement to present the international card for vaccination.
