Covid-19 update

Information & Update about Covid-19

At Najaf International Airport, we’re committed to making our airport as clean and safe as possible. When air travel becomes commonplace again, we want you to feel comfortable making your journey.

We want to share our processes and procedures with you, because after all, we’re in this together.

We know this global pandemic will change the world for years to come; we’re going to re-examine every step of a passenger’s journey to see how we can make the experience as safe and secure as possible. This may include looking at new touchless technologies and how the passenger can have more control in how they interact with surfaces and staff at our airport.
