ETIHAD AIRWAYS STATEMENT ON AIRSPACE RESTRICTIONS



Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – Following the decision yesterday of the US Federal Aviation Administration to restrict US airline operations in Iranian-controlled airspace, Etihad Airways consulted closely with the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority and other UAE airlines to evaluate the US action.

Etihad Airways has subsequently suspended operations through Iranian airspace over the Straits of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman, and will use alternative flight paths on a number of routes to and from Abu Dhabi until further notice.

These changes will cause delays on some departures from Abu Dhabi, due to increased congestion in available airspace, and will increase journey times on some routes.

The safety of our passengers and staff is the highest priority for Etihad Airways, and we are continually engaging with regulatory authorities and conducting our own risk assessments to ensure that our standards are not compromised.

Etihad Airways will provide updates of affected flights on its global website, etihad.com.

For further information, please call the Etihad Airways Contact Centre on (+971) 600 555 666, or check the status of your flight on etihad.com, or through our mobile app.
