On 3 February 2016, the newly established Iraqi airline “Fly Baghdad” launched a three weekly service from the capital of Iraq to Kish Island. The airline also operates several weekly flights to Tehran, Sari, Isfahan and Mashhad. The flights are carried by A320s and B737s.
On the inagurate flight, about 50 Iraqis were welcomed by Kish. Kish Island is a visa-free zone, welcoming all citizens but Israelis.
