SAUDIA takes you to Baghdad.
SAUDIA is pleased to offer its passengers flights to Baghdad after a hiatus of 27 years. Now our airline is once again taking travelers to one of the most important cities in the Middle East, historically as well as today. Iraq is one of the top five countries in proved oil reserves and oil accounts for the vast majority of the country’s economy and revenues making Baghdad an important nexus for business. Baghdad’s Al-Khulafa Mosque was built nearly 2,000 years ago under the Abbasid caliph Al-Muktafi. The mosque was mentioned by Ibn Battuta, the famous Moroccan world traveler from the Middle Ages. Today the original minaret is still standing. Baghdad has been known for centuries as a world class center of learning and culture. The Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra is based in Baghdad as well as the Music and Ballet School of Baghdad. Today Mutanabbi Street is where the city’s bookselling is concentrated. Close by is Al-Qushla with its famous clock tower from the 1850s and small plaza.
