Airlines re-route flights to avoid Iranian airspace

Airlines, including British Airways, Qantas, KLM and Singapore Airlines, are re-routing flights to avoid parts of Iran-controlled airspace, reports Travelmole.

All US carriers have been told to avoid the area after Iran used a surface-to-air missile to shoot down a US drone on Wednesday. Flight paths over the Strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman are being re-routed over concerns for the safety of commercial airlines.

Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and KLM are re-routing flights, with Singapore warning some journeys might require longer routings to avoid the area.
