“We have been closely monitoring the situation in Iraq and after a thorough review of all operational factors, we have decided to resume our services. This will help support business and international investment across numerous sectors in Erbil,” said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates divisional senior vice president commercial operations, centre.
