Keeping Iraq’s airports flying.

Iraq, 2002 – today. SkyLink was responsible for the assessment and implementation of re-construction of the three largest airports in Iraq. Working closely with the local government, SkyLink maintained the safe and secure operation of these airports. We continue to manage daily airport operations and supply 300,000 litres/day of fuel in Baghdad, Basrah and Erbil.
