Tensions between Iran and the United States: The Middle East has become a nightmare for airlines



The US agency said it was concerned about "increased military action and increased political tensions" in the region after Iran used a ground-to-air missile to launch the unmanned airplane while operating in the vicinity of civilian air routes. "

Airlines quickly took action. The airlines canceled their service between India and Newark until September 1, while carriers like Qantas , KLM, and DLAKF ) said they would adhere to the restrictions, which means that the changes to the routes for some major Dubai-Doha flights and Abu Dhabi as well as for airplanes crossing the area on routes to and from Asia The situation is particularly complex for Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways, which operate a large number of long-haul flights from those Gulf airports, Emirates said on Friday that it is redirecting all flights away from the "potential conflict zones" and will make further changes if necessary

Increasing costs and risks [1
9659008] For commercial airlines and freight carriers, flight restrictions mean long journeys, time and money. Nowhere is the disruption of the Middle East obvious.

Airlines have avoided flying over Syria in recent years, remaining better than airspace patrolled by military aircraft. But they also escaped parts of Iran and Iraq at different points. The civil war has prompted Yemeni to be limited by 2015, and a missile launched by Hati's rebels has hit the Saudi airport arriving in Saudi Arabia this month. Airlines also escape North Sinai, where Egypt fights Islamic militants.

"The Middle East has never been more complicated for aircraft operators," said Mark Zie, founder of OpsGroup, an organization that tracks airspace for member airlines and controllers. "This is even more complicated in the last six years. Whatever the way you turn, the route has been interrupted."

However, the vast number of flights from European airports such as London, Amsterdam and Frankfurt still have to pass through the Middle East on their way to Asian destinations such as Bangkok and Singapore

"This is a huge amount of traffic," said Zie, "There is no alternative."

to avoid bottlenecks, means higher costs for airlines that together spend 180m $ 1 billion a year for jet fuel A further half hour in the air, repeating for one year, is worth millions of dollars of extra cost, which does not mean anything extra time travelers can afford to travel

Zee pointed out the example of flights between Amsterdam and New Delhi to illustrate the impact, usually flights between the two cities will fly over Pakistan, but many travel around the country for armed clashes with India. Iran also sits on the flight path, which means that there may now be a second diversion. a second glance over the safety of flights over the conflict zones. In this case, 298 people were killed when the plane was dropped from a rocket while flying over part of eastern Ukraine held by Pro-Russian separatists.

Some airlines have already found that overtaking the area is risky and avoided when MZ17 was down. But the sharing of information between airlines, regulators and governments meant that some carriers were continuing to send flights through eastern Ukraine.

Currently, industry applies some of the lessons learned from this disaster.

In a message sent to airlines on Thursday, the FAA said flight tracking applications have suggested that the nearest civilian aircraft should be within 45 miles of the US airplane. it was targeted. The missile system used by the Iranians may have been able to reach 60,000 feet, approximately twice the altitude of many commercial airplanes, the agency said. to attack Iran before he retires "data-src-mini =" // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/190617131443-trump-06112019-small-169.jpg "data-src-xsmall =" //cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/190617131443-trump-06112019-medium-plus-169.jpg "data-src-small =" http://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets /190617131443-trump-06112019-large-169.jpg "data-src-medium =" // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/190617131443-trump-06112019-exlarge-169.jpg "data-src- large = "// cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/190617131443-trump-06112019-super-169.jpg" data-src-full16x9 = "// cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/ 190617131443-trump-06112019-full-169.jpg "data-src-mini1x1 =" // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/190617131443-trump-06112019-small-11.jpg "data-demand-load = "not-loaded" data-eq-pts = "mini: 0, xsmall: 221, small: 308, medium: 461, large: 781" src = "data: image / gif; // wAAACH5BAEAAAIALAAAAAAQAAkAAAIKlI + py + 0Po5yUFQA7 "/>
