Breaking News & Middle East | Australia’s Qantas Directs Flights Away From Strait of Hormuz

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – Australia’s flag carrier, Qantas Airways Ltd, said on Friday that its flights over the Middle East would avoid the Strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman following the downing of a U.S. surveillance drone in the region.

The restriction will mean a slight change to the route for flights between Australia and London, the airline said in a statement.

The U.s Federal Aviation Administration has issues an emergency order prohibiting U.S. operators from flying in Iran-controlled airspace over the Strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman due to heightened tensions.
