DUBAI, UAE, Emirates Airline is to launch flights to Erbil from August 12 in what will become the third Iraqi destination served by the Dubai-based carrier.

The service to the capital of Iraq's Kurdistan region will initially run four times a week before becoming daily from September 1, 2012.

It will be operated by an Airbus 340-300 in a 267-seat, three-class configuration, and will have capacity for 13 tonnes of cargo.

Emirates currently operates a daily flight to the Iraqi capital Baghdad and a four times a week service to the coastal city of Basra.

"Since we first launched flights into Iraq we have seen demand for our services there increase tenfold," said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed AlMaktoum, Chairman and CEO.

"Emirates has been offering a well utilised cargo service to Erbil since February 2011 and we are confident that our new passenger service will be filled in both directions."

Erbil is Emirates 11th new route to launch this year, following services to destinations including Dublin, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dallas Fort Worth,www.ekurd.net Seattle, Lusaka, Harare and Ho Chi Minh City.

Later in summer, the carrier will start flights to Barcelona, Lisbon and Washington DC.
