Major Middle East Airlines To Resume Flights After Iran’s Attack On Israel

Major Middle East Airlines To Resume Flights After Iran’s Attack On  Israel

Major airlines across the Middle East announced they would resume operations in the region after canceling or rerouting some lights as Iran launched dozens of drones and missiles at Israel through Saturday night Sunday.


Emirates Airlines, which had canceled some of its fights and rerouted others due to temporary airspace closures in the region, was resuming scheduled operations to and from Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq from Sunday afternoon, a spokesperson said.


Qatar Airways also resumed services to Amman, Beirut, and Baghdad, it said in a post on X, while Etihad was planning to operate scheduled passenger and cargo services between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv, Amman, and Beirut starting from Monday.


Etihad warned that as services return to normal after the temporary closure of airspace across parts of the Middle East, “there may still be a risk of some know–on disruption across Monday 15”.


“Some of our flights have been affected by the temporary closure of a number of airspaces in the region”, a statement from the United Arab Emirates Fly Dubai was quoted on state news agency WAM as saying.


The attack had spurred similar announcements from Lebanon, Egypt, and Kuwait following several Arab countries announcing the temporary closure of their airspace.


Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon announced on Sunday morning that they had reopened their airspace following the overnight attacks, while Israeli airlines said that operations were returning to normal after Israel reopened its airspace as of 7.30 a.m. (0430 GMT).
