Garuda Indonesia Switches Flight Routes to Europe Via Egypt and Greece
Garuda Indonesia ensures that air routes for and flights to and from Europe don't pass through Iran's airspace and beyond. See the details.
This follows a flight ban issued by the United States Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) after the ongoing tension in the region.
Acting Director of Garuda Indonesia Operations, Tumpal M. Hutapea said that Garuda Indonesia would adjust flight routes to and from Europe from those previously crossing Bucharest airspace to be diverted into Egyptian and Greek airspace.
"Thus all Garuda Indonesia operational services on the route will continue as normal," said Tumpal in an official statement on Wednesday (01/08/2020).
Tumpal also said that his party would continue to intensively monitor further developments regarding these conditions and coordinate with all relevant stakeholders in ensuring safety and security aspects of Garuda Indonesia's operational services to be maintained.
In addition to Garuda, many airlines abroad have canceled or changed travel routes that pass through the Iranian route to mitigate risks related to the heating conditions of Iran and the US. Iran briefly carried out a retaliatory attack on US facilities in Iraq in retaliation for last week's murder of the Iranian general.
In addition, Korean Air Lines Co. Ltd and Thai Airways have also avoided Iranian and Iraqi airspace before attacks on US forces. (*)
