Baghdad Airport Guide to Baghdad International Airport (BGW)

Baghdad Airport Terminals

Baghdad Airport consists in two terminals:

Military Terminal (New Al Muthanna Air Base, the Iraqi Air Force Base.) and Civilian Terminal (Passenger Terminal).

At Baghdad airport there is a special VIP Terminal with conference rooms and beautiful furnitures to welcome personalities.


Present & future

During next years it is planned to do a refurbishment of the three terminals at the airport and build three more terminals to double the capacity of Baghdad airport and handle 15 million passengers annually.

Nowadays, one of the terminals is currently under refurbishment works.


Passenger Terminal

It is divided in 3 Concourses: A, B and C that are known as Nineveh Terminal, Babylon Terminal and Samara Terminal, names that correspond of ancient cities which are still preserved today in Iraq.

One of the terminals is used by Iraqi Airways, while the middle one is for handling all other flights.

As a curiosity, the shape of the ceilings of the main terminal are palm trees.
