ORBI - Baghdad International Airport, Baghdad, Iraq
Slowly but surely the Baghdad international airport comes back to life. Although the airport is quite large, it is not yet used to its maximum. Some aprons still have no real use and thus are empty. Apron V, the presidential apron, is still present but might have been restructured by now.
Airlines like Austrian, Emirates, Etihad, Royal Jordanian and FlyDubai offer regular services to Baghdad.
Using ADEx 1.51 and the IRAQ AIP this AFCAD updates the default airport to what it is now on paper. Google EarthÃ�Â´s images are too old to offer any help regarding buildings, vegetation and surrounding areas like offices, parkings, roads and apron V.
Gatenumbers have been updated, taxiways added and renamed, ILS 15R/33L has been removed, the military area is more detailed, taxiways are correctly sized and the overall quality of the airport increased.
For those interested, the complete IRAQ AIP is attached. It not only gives complete information about several Iraqi airports, it also holds approach plates of most of them. You will also find plates for ORSU, for which an AFCAD has been uploaded separately.
