Iraq revokes ban on cargo planes from landing directly in Kurdistan
PM:10:04:30/04/2017
The Iraqi government has revoked a decision made earlier this week that banned direct landing for all cargo planes at all Iraqi airports, including that of Sulaimani and Erbil’s, a senior official told Rudaw. 
 
It was revealed on Wednesday that Iraq's Ministry of Transportation had sent a directive to Iraqi airports that all cargo flights bound for all Iraqi provinces, including Kurdistan Region’s, must first be inspected in Baghdad. The reason for the change wasn't immediately clear.
 
The directive was meant to come into effect on May 1.
 
Kurdistan Region has two international airports, Erbil and Sulaimani, with each expressing their discontent over the earlier decision. 
 
"The Iraqi Aviation Authority had decided on [Monday] to have all cargo planes inspected at Baghdad airport before they can land at airports in Erbil, Sulaimani and other Iraqi provinces,” Tahir Abdullah, Sulaimani Airport Director told Rudaw Thursday,  "The Iraqi Aviation Authority rescinded the decision after we along with some other parties intervened in the matter.” 
 
"The Iraqi Aviation Authority has revoked the decision ...From now on, cargo planes can land at any airport, and will be inspected where they wish to land,” Abdullah added.
 
Director of Erbil International Airport, Talar Fayeq,  had earlier told Rudaw that the Iraqi authorities wanted to inspect all cargo planes first in Baghdad airport, and only then they were to be authorized at the airport they were bound to.  

Fayeq said that it was unclear as to what had prompted the decision.
 
"The reason behind this decision is not known yet. This is, however, likely to be a political decision. There is no such thing anywhere in the world. Every airport has its own inspection team who carry out their duties professionally,” Fayeq added.
 
The Iraqi civil aviation division also claimed they had no knowledge of what lied behind the Monday decision.
 
"The decision was made directly by the Iraqi Minister of Transportation and Communication, Kazim Finjan,” the Director General of the Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority, Hussein Muhsen
