Crisis: Iranian airports cancel flights


Several Iranian airports, including Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport, have cancelled flights until Monday.

This development followed the crisis between Iran and Israel.

The airport’s executive said all flights from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport have been cancelled until 6 am (0230 GMT) following an announcement by Iran’s Civil Aviation Organisation.

According to Iran’s Airports and Air Navigation Company, domestic flights from Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport and airports in Shiraz, Isfahan, Bushehr, Kerman, Ilam, and Sanandaj have also been cancelled until Monday morning, as the country’s western airspace remains off limits to flights.

Major airlines across the Middle East have announced the cancellation of some of their flights while having to reroute others, though Israel reopened its airspace as of 7:30 am local time on Sunday.

Beirut airport also reopened this morning and flights in and out of the Lebanese capital have reportedly resumed.

Tehran has warned it will strike again with greater force if Israel or the US retaliate for the Iranian strike on Israel by more than 300 drones and missiles on Saturday night.

DAILY POST recalls that Iran launched an unprecedented large-scale drone and missile attack at Israel on Saturday night, in retaliation for a suspected Israeli strike on an Iranian diplomatic complex in Syria, bringing the long-running shadow war between the two sides into the open and raising the prospect of full-blown regional conflict.
