Before The Flight

Iraqi Airways is committed to caring for our customers on all our flights. It is important that the necessary steps be taken to ensure that their journey is an organised, comfortable, safe and pleasant one. Here are fourteen (14) important pre-travel tips that you should note:

Ensure you have the entry requirements, such as valid passport, appropriate visa(s), and any other travel documents that will permit disembarkation and layover at any point en route. Obtaining this information and documentation is your responsibility.

Make sure you arrive and depart with the same passport

Ensure you are inoculated as required by the country(ies) you are visiting.

Visit our baggage checking section to ensure you are in-keeping with the baggage allowances permitted for your routing. We also suggest you familiarise yourself with our packing advice .

Double-check the required airport check-in time.

Request a seat prior to travel, and if you have any special dietary needs, you may make that request as well. These requests must be made at least 48 hours prior to scheduled departure time.

If you will require any type of special service (e.g. wheelchair), be sure to make a request prior to your departure. This request must be done at least 48 hours prior to scheduled departure time.

Purchase a guidebook, visit the Internet or pursue any other means to make proper arrangements for your stay or onward journey.

Make sure you drink plenty of water before and during the flight. Dehydration is a common cause of headaches and discomfort.
