Unlocking investment opportunities in Iraq’s civil aviation sector
All signs point to opportunity.
Iraq’s civil aviation sector is experiencing what has been heralded as a ‘new beginning’. Despite being up against a challenging environment and years of underinvestment and deterioration, significant steps towards the reconstruction of the civil aviation sector have been taken.
The government has a clear vision of the worldclass facilities that it plans to develop, as well as a strong strategy for rebuilding Iraqi Airways as an international airline.
Iraq’s major airports are being rehabilitated, and provincial governments are upgrading existing airports as well as planning the construction of new airports. Procurement of a range of solution providers from design and build engineers, air traffic control systems, baggage handling and passenger ticketing equipment is underway.
