KLM is no longer flying over Iran and Iraq


After intensive internal consultation, KLM has decided, until further notice, not to fly through the airspaces of Iran and Iraq. The same applies to other international airlines. According to KLM, flights will be made via alternative routes. A KLM spokesperson reports that there was no crisis consultation this morning on the situation in the Middle East. “We are always optimizing flights.”

The next KLM flight from Amsterdam to the risk area will go to Muscat, the capital of Oman. It concerns flight KL421 (10.30 am) via Damman in Saudi Arabia. Whether that flight will be adjusted is still unknown.

The conflict between America and Iran and Iraq, started after the attack on General Soleimani, flares up further and causes great unrest throughout the world. Tonight, the Iraqi-American air base in Ain al-Asad, Iraq, and other targets in the country were hit by multiple missiles. KLM and other airlines no longer fly through the airspaces of Iran and Iraq.
