The rights to the Iraqi Airways name was transferred to a new and separate company named Iraqi Airways Company that would structure a new airline with the objective of protecting it from past accumulated legal issues. Operations restarted on 3 October 2004 with a flight between Baghdad and Amman. The flight operations were conducted by aircraft owned and operated by Teebah Airlines an offshore airline based in Jordan.  Later in 2009 with a Boeing 737-300 leased from Seagle Air and with a Boeing 737-400 leased from Tor Air and Blue Wings, a German airline.  On 13 January 2010, Blue Wings ceased operations causing all flights operating for Iraqi Airways to be suspended.
