CAIRO: National carrier EgyptAir on Saturday resumed direct flights to Iraq after a break of 21 years, the airline’s chairman Hussein Massoud told AFP.

"The first Cairo-Baghdad flight left today with about 30 passengers on board," he said, adding EgyptAir would fly four times a week to Baghdad and three times to Arbil, capital of autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan.

The service was scrapped in 1990 after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait.
