    First of all - ask you husband ! He's likely to have much better information than any person on this site.
    Second - There are are few airlines (e.g. Austrian that fly to Erbil), as well as Royal Jordanian to Baghdad.
    Iraqi Airlines also flies to several ME destinations as well as Frankfurt & London from Baghdad.

    However before you do go, you'll need your husband to organize transport and protection from Baghdad to Kirkuk - something he'll find expensive and difficult to do.

    Do head people's warning about safety in Iraq ! It is not a tourist destination and you'll be in grave danger should you attempt to travel from Baghdad to Kirkuk overland.
