Gulf Air plane diverted to Baghdad for refueling

Manama, January 14, 2013

A Gulf Air plane was diverted to Baghdad Airport yesterday from Najaf for refueling, said a report.

The flight GF 204 needed additional fuel after arrival at Najaf International airport. Since the fuel grade at Najaf airport has not met Gulf Air’s quality standards, permission was sought from Iraq Civil Aviation Authority for a technical stop in Baghdad to refuel, said a statement issued by Gulf Air.

After receiving permission, aircraft departed Najaf to Baghdad as planned and the flight landed normally in Baghdad for refueling and departed for Bahrain after a few hours delay, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
