Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fired “dozens of missiles” at an Iraqi military base with U.S. troops, CNN reported. Since then, several international airlines have issued statements saying they have adjusted their routes to avoid Iranian airspace.
Singapore Airlines reportedly said in a statement on the 8th that its flights to and from Europe have been diverted from Iranian airspace, adding that “the situation is being closely monitored and will be appropriate lying to our routes if necessary.” ”
Malaysia Airlines also said in a statement that it “will avoid passing through conflicted airspace” due to recent events. ”
Earlier in the day, the Federal Aviation Administration issued emergency restrictions on the Persian Gulf, banning U.S. flights over the region, saying there was “a possibility of miscalculation or misidentification.”
