Ahead of Lok Sabha elections, centre to launch direct Air India flights to holy city of Najaf


In a big gesture for Shia Muslims ahead of the general elections, the Narendra Modi government has decided to launch a direct Air India flight to the holy city of Najaf in Iraq.

Najaf is renowned as the site of the tomb of Caliph ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, who is revered by all Muslims but is considered to be the first Imam of the Shias.

The loss-making airline will operate the flight from Lucknow on Mondays and Thursdays and the inaugural flight will be flagged off by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday. Read More
