Egypt's national airline EgyptAir says it will resume flights to Iraq next month after a 21-year break.

The chairman of the EgyptAir holding company, Hussein Massoud, said Sunday the airline will operate four flights weekly to Iraq's capital, Baghdad, and three flights weekly to Irbil, in Kurdistan.

He said the flights will start July 15.

EgyptAir suspended flights to Iraq in 1990 before the first Gulf War.
