KaperoniArticle: "Source for "tomorrow Press": Ministry of Transport decides to adopt Iraqi currency instead of foreign selling tickets" Quote: "The source pointed to "the impossibility of receiving the amount of ticket sales in Iraqi dinars on the basis of the US dollar because of the exchange rate variation in local markets."
A step towards convertibility! "Exchange rate variation" is referring to the spread. Or market price which has come down a bit in recent weeks (from 1300 to now about 1280). They appear apprehensive to sell tickets in dinar until the market price is stable in Iraq.
It has nothing to do with the CBI price of the dinar/dollar. But like I said, since they are talking about selling tickets in dinar, it is a good thing and a move towards what we all want which is international convertibility.
Keep in mind the airline states that their system is currently selling tickets based on dollars ($). Which makes sense.
Allowing some to begin to buy tickets in dinars is a good sign of what is to come.
