Singapore and Malaysia Airlines divert their flights from Iranian airspace

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Malaysia Airlines (MAS) airlines decided on Wednesday to divert all of their flights that cross Iran's airspace after the Iranian missile attack on two bases with US troops in Iraq.

"Given the events in the region, all SIA flights to and from Europe will not fly over Iranian airspace. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully," a Singapore Airlines spokesman said in a statement.

"Malaysia Airlines does not fly over Iraq's airspace on its flights to / from London, Jeddah and Medina," said Malaysian company communications chief Norshafiza Zulkifli.

"Due to the recent events in Iran, Malaysia Airlines will avoid the conflicting airspace of Iran," the spokeswoman added.
