Airports in Iraq

Iraq is home to several international airports as well as a variety of smaller regional airports for domestic travel. To reach North America, you'll have to plan a route that takes you through Europe ahead of time, as there are no direct flights from Iraq to Canada or the United States. Baghdad International Airport (BGW) is the largest airport in Iraq, and where most international flights will depart from. Basra International Airport (BSR) is a good option if you're looking for a flight to another country in the Middle East, but doesn't currently offer flights to Europe. Erbil International Airport (EBL) modernized their facilities in 2010 and offers flights throughout Europe and the Middle East.

To get to the airport, you'll need to pass through several security checkpoints starting right at the border of the airport property.
