Etihad Airways has suspended all flights to Erbil, Iraq with immediate effect, until further notice.

The decision to suspend the four flights a week passenger service follows advice regarding the possibility of a deteriorating security situation in the region as a result of on-going military conflict between Iraqi security and ISIS forces.

  • Guests booked to fly to Erbil are advised to contact the airline’s nearest office, details of which can be found on the Etihad Airways website at , or call the Etihad Airways Contact Centre on: + 971 (0)2 599 0000 (UAE) to discuss options to re-route, re-book or cancel their travel plans.
  • Flights to Basra and Baghdad are currently operating as normal.
  • Etihad Airways apologises for any inconvenience caused and is doing everything possible to minimise the impact of any disruption.
