This episode of Zian la Rojek finds Kawa exploring Erbil International Airport. As well as having one of the world’s longest runways, Kawa learns that it deals with one million passengers a year, competing favourably with other airports in the region.
Kawa meets the airport’s highly-trained fire-fighters and participates in their training; he races the length of the runway in their state-of-the-art fire engine and rescues a victim from a smoke-filled room. At a more sedate pace, he pits his wits against the sharp-eyed officers of passport control, seeing if he can detect fake documents. He meets the brains behind the operation, Mrs Taler Faiq Salih, and, finally, helps to land a multi-million dollar aeroplane.
