Lufthansa, the German airline, yesterday signalled its confidence in Iraq's economic recovery when it became the first leading European or US carrier in 20 years to announce the resumption of scheduled flights to Baghdad.

Europe's largest airline said it was planning to fly to the Iraqi capital from Frankfurt and Munich this summer, hoping to profit from rising demand from business people.
