The Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA) has entrusted National Aviation Services (NAS), an aviation services provider across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, to upgrade and operate passenger-handling services and processes at Baghdad International Airport.
NAS will extend its expertise and resources at the Babylon and Samara passenger terminals as well as the international transit halls. NAS will also be responsible for the refurbishment and upgrade of infrastructure and facilities, installation of new equipment, and implementation of all required technology solutions at the two terminals.
The two terminals serve all major airlines flying in and out of the country, making NAS the exclusive passenger-handling services provider for all international flights. Baghdad International Airport re-opened in July 2020, following a four-month suspension of flights due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The upgraded infrastructure, facilities and technology will contribute heavily to these airline operations including automated passenger departure systems, enhanced safety and security, productivity and on time performance (OTP).
