FAA issues new guidance on flight over warzones

The US FAA has issued new restrictions to American carriers, instructing them to fly over Iraqi airspace at altitudes higher than 30,000 feet, citing “the potentially hazardous situation created by armed conflict.”

The FAA restriction also prohibited US carriers from flying in and out of two Iraqi airports, specifically Irbil International and Sulaymaniyah International.
