India Takes Big Decision Amid Us-Iran Tension

Amid rising geopolitical stress between the US and Iran, including all UAE airlines many leading airlines around the world are rerouting some of their flight paths to avoid Iranian airspace. India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DCGA) announced on its twitter that all Indian airlines have made a decision to avoid the affected parts of the Iranian airspace. The announcement came days after Iran shot down an unmanned U.S. spy drone. Ashwani Lohani, Air India’s Chairman and Managing Director said, “No substantial effect on Air India flights. Details are being worked out for rerouting on incoming flights.” Major airlines around the world have already rerouted their aircraft and after this decision India had became one of them.
