EASA issues SIB on flight routes close to Syria

EASA published on 9 October 2015 a Safety Information Bulletin (SIB 2015-22) to inform airspace users (airlines and their pilots) that missile launches from the Caspian Sea took place last week (6 and 7 October). These missiles en-route to Syria, crossed airspace in Iran and Iraq, below flight routes used by commercial transport aeroplanes. The SIB aims to create awareness of this fact to all airspace users.

EASA said the missiles were “below flight routes which are used by commercial transport aeroplanes.” EASA said it has “no specific recommendations” on the issue, and published the SIB simply “to inform airspace users about the hazard. EASA will amend this SIB if more specific information is received related to that situation.”
