Airlines advised precautionary measures over Iran airspace

New Delhi, Jan 8 (IANS) Civil aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation has asked Indian airlines to remain vigilant and take all precautionary measures when flying over the Iranian and Iraqi airspace.

The development comes after US-Iran geopolitical tensions in the region escalated on Wednesday.

“A meeting was held with all concerned airlines which operate flights over these airspaces,” a senior DGCA official told IANS.

“We have sensitised them to remain vigilant and take all precautions.”

At present only Air India uses the Iran-Iraq airspace for operations to Europe and other destinations.

Currently, no Indian airline flies directly to Iran.
