Work starts on Duhok International Airport

Work has officially started on Kurdistan’s Duhok International Airport, ahead of its planned opening in late 2015/early 2016.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) hopes that the new $200 million gateway will boost trade and tourism links to Duhok province, a South Kurdistan.

Other commercial airports in Kurdistan include Sulaimani and Erbil, which has become one of the world’s fastest growing gateways since opening for business in March 2010.

Prime Minister hosts groundbreaking for Duhok International Airport

MON, 24 SEP 2012 19:31 | KRG.org

Dohuk, South Kurdistan – (KRG.org) – Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani today hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new international airport in Duhok.

Duhok International Airport will be the third airport in the South Kurdistan. After its completion in 2015, travellers will have direct international access to each of the Region’s three provinces.

Speaking at the event, the Prime Minister highlighted the importance of airports to the ever-growing trade, investment and tourism in the South Kurdistan. “The building of airports in all of Kurdistan’s provinces paves the way to the outside world. This is a vehicle to open up a Region that is closed to the world. This airport is a bridge between a land locked nation and the outside world,” he said.

Emphasising the progress that the Region has experienced over the past several years, the Prime Minister said, “The steadfastness of the Kurdish people, and the assistance of our friends around the world, has allowed us to reach this day,” adding, “…this is a national achievement even more than it is just an airport for Duhok province.”

The Prime Minister went on to thank the international companies participating in the project, including the Lebanese Dar Al-Handasa Engineering, which designed the facilities, ADPI of France, Makyol construction company, and a team from South Korea’s Incheon International Airport which will supervise the construction.

Kurdistan's other two airports in Erbil and Sulaimani already provide direct flights to more than 25 destinations in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Commercial flights to Erbil began in 2005, and the $550 million state-of-the-art Erbil International Airport (EIA) opened for business in March 2010. Now one of the fastest growing airports in the world, EIA saw a 37% increase in traffic between 2010 and 2011, for a total of 620,000 passengers. And in the first two quarters of 2012, passenger numbers indicate that the growth rate will rise to around 50% this year.

The Deputy Minister of the federal Iraqi Ministry of Transport, who has provided a great deal of support to the project, was present at today’s ceremony, as was the Head of Airways and representatives from the Aviation Authority.

In addition to many members of the local business and diplomatic communities, the ceremony was also attended by the KRG Minister of Transport and Communication, Mr Jonson Siyaoosh, the Minister of Municipalities and Tourism, Mr Dilshad Shahab, and the Deputy Minister of Finance and Economy, Mr Rasheed Tahir.

Erbil international airport

Its runway is the longest in the Middle East and the fifth on the world level, after China, Russia, South Africa and the U.S. respectively.

The airport, designed by a British company and constructed by a Turkish company over 27,000 square meters, can operate 150 flights per day.

America lifts 16 year commercial airplane ban to Kurdistan for Sulaimania and Erbil only

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is lifting a 16-year-old ban on commercial flights by U.S. carriers to two airports in South Kurdistan, citing increased stability in the region.

Civilian flights to that nation, which had been the scene a U.S.-imposed no-fly zone and then a war to depose President Saddam Hussein, were halted in 1996 for safety reasons, the FAA said in a notice to be published in the Federal Register tomorrow.

The agency will now allow flights into Erbil and Sulaimani airports in northern South Kurdistan. Flights by commercial operators from other nations have used the airports without incident for years, the FAA said in the notice.

“The FAA has determined that flights by U.S. operators may now be conducted safely to these two airports under certain conditions,” it said.

U.S. civilian flights have been allowed to operate over Iraq at altitudes above 20,000 feet (6,096 meters), and the FAA has granted permission for some commercial flights into that country under contract by the military or other agencies.

The Transportation Security Administration, which oversees security issues, also must approve U.S. carrier operations in Iraq, according to the FAA notice.

The FAA said it is evaluating other airports in Iraq to determine if additional lifting of the restrictions might be warranted.

While U.S. political and commercial relations with the Kurdistan regional government are stable, tensions with the central government of Shiite Muslim Prime Minister Nouri al- Maliki have been strained by reports that Iraq is allowing Iran to ship weapons through Iraqi airspace to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

Kurdistan welcomes America's decision to resume its flights to airports in Sulaimani and Hewlêr

The Director of Hewlêr International Airport, Talar Faiq considered the federal navigation administration's decision to lift the ban on U.S. civil aircraft flights to airports of Erbil and Sulaimani as "a great achievement for the South Kurdistan."

She said in a press statement today 9, Dec that "the decision of lifting the U.S. ban flights and resuming them to the International airports of Erbil and Sulaimani after 16 years represents an important step to the South Kurdistan, especially in the area of consolidation of security and safety and the development of economic and tourism sectors."

She added, "This decision will have a significant role in expanding the region's relations with various countries of the world and will push other countries to make similar decisions, especially Britain, which is still imposing a ban on the planes heading to Iraq and kurdistan for many years."

We are the Guarantee & future of Kurdistan's Aviation

Rudaw.net 12.02.2011

A group of 7 international students studying to establish an Aviation for KRG in Qatar Rudaw magazine reports .

In an interview with Rudaw magazine the students state that their main goal is for IKU to allow them to establish a Kurdish international independent Aviation because as they explain one main condition by IKU for any states to be allowed to become a member and operate is, to have their own independent Aviation, with experienced pilots and engineers, as well as few purchased Airplanes.

Jamil Ali one of the students said "we were first accepted in Doha's Pilot College in Nov-2008, we want to prove to the world that Kurds just like any other nation can have skills and capability in every sector and we can be very dedicated people to our work". he said that him and his fellow colleagues are very keen on completing their major an bringing their degrees back to serve Kurdistan.

He also stated that KRG is paying for the full cost and that they are very thankful for their help and support.

"there has been a lot of fresh interest from Kurdistan wanting to follow our path, we will support and show them the way which will make it way easier for them" . Jamil told Rudaw. Jamil said that their group's marking is at the top of all the other students in the college and that one of the students named 'Mahamad Ali Osman' came 1st with 98/100 mark in the whole college last year. Hajar Ahmed who is studying engineering in the airplane systems says we "are very grateful for what the KRG has offered us so far".

It's worth mentioning these 7 students will graduate in 16 months and the new applicants are to enroll once they've finished and returned home.

Kurdistan Aviation agency soon established

http://bas-news.net/ArticleDetail.aspx?articleid=2914

Translation:
In an important attempt in order to further develop the economy and politic aspect of Kurdistan, Kurdistan Government is now in the process of establishing its own Kurdish aviation agency by doing so the region will no longer be bound by rules from Baghdad for the landing and take off of the aircrafts coming in and out of the region.

Imad Ahmed deputy prime minister during his visit yesterday to Sulaimani airport announced that they are in the process of establishing a civil aviation agency.

"Once established this agency will have an important impact in developing the aviation sector and the flights and its passengers will have an easier method for their travelings" he added.
