SULAIMANI — Iraq’s aviation authority announced on Friday (March 27) that it will extend the suspension of all flights into and out of the country until April 11.

Both Erbil and Sulaimani international airports are subject to the order, which exempts cargo, military, medical aid, and Iraqi Red Crescent Society flights and is part of the measures taken to prevent the further spread of coronavirus.

The federal government initially suspended all flights on March 16.
