Increasing numbers of people on pilgrimages are heading to Najaf in central Iraq, news that might lead to more holidaymakers booking Viking Hellas flights to Erbil.
Farhan Shibli, a hotel owner in the holy city, told the AFP that the town is so popular there are not enough hotel rooms to accommodate visitors.
The destination's chamber of commerce recently estimated that around 3,500 people arrive there each day.
"Even if we multiplied the number of hotels in Najaf by ten times, it would not be enough," Mr Shibli commented.
Among the locations they come to visit is the shrine of 17th century leader Imam Ali.
Those with Viking Hellas flights to Erbil who are looking for accommodation in the city might consider staying at the Qasr Dur, which it the destination's only four-star establishment.
Jet-setters who fly into Erbil may want to take a couple of days to explore attractions such as the Citadel of Erbil - which has been inhabited since the sixth century BC.
