AMMAN - Jordan's state carrier Royal Jordanian (RJ) will suspend its flights to Erbil and Sulaymaniyah in northern Iraq from Friday following a request from Iraqi authorities, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

The airline, which operates 10 weekly flights to Erbil and three weekly flights to Sulaymaniyah, said the suspension of flights would start at 6 pm local Amman time on Friday.

The government in Baghdad is at loggerheads with the Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq after they held a referendum on independence.
