Airlines worldwide persist in navigating route disruptions stemming from the conflict between Iran and Israel.

Once again, tensions between nation-states erupted dramatically in the Middle East. On the night of April 13th, the Islamic Republic of Iran launched a barrage of hundreds of missiles and attack drones towards Israel. Such conflicts create an extremely hazardous environment for airlines, prompting them to reroute their flights away from the conflict zone.

The tragic incidents of MH17 being shot down by a Buk missile over Ukraine in 2014 and the Iranian downing of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 in 2020 serve as stark reminders of the risks associated with flying over active war zones involving air defense systems. While the successful interception of reportedly 99% of Iran’s missiles and drones by the US, UK, France, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel received widespread acclaim, it has nevertheless resulted in disruption within the aviation industry.
