Several airlines on Wednesday said they would be avoiding Iranian airspace or canceling flights in the wake of heightened tensions in the Middle East.
Singapore Airlines, Qantas, China Airlines, Lufthansa and Malaysia Airlines were among those which said they’re avoiding the Iranian airspace.
In a statement to CNBC, Singapore Airlines said, “In view of the latest developments in the region, all SIA flights in and out of Europe are diverted from the Iranian airspace.”
“We are monitoring the situation closely and will make the appropriate adjustments to our routes if necessary,” it added.
