Collage of Management and Economic, University of Basra, Iraq


Airports are considered a civilized interface that reflects the economic strength of the country and its development, and that Basra International Airport is the second largest airport in Iraq in terms of area, and one of the most important services it provides is to reduce the waiting time at the boarding pass stations and the security check station and passport stamping for foreign trips and to calculate the airport's ability to leave travellers from Basra airport. The simulation was used to find out the ability of Basra Airport to accommodate the number of passengers at peak times of the sequential queuing networks model.
