BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – Qatar Airways has been using Iranian airspace to conduct its regional flights, the Chief Executive the Civil Aviation Organization of Iran, ‘Ali Abedzadeh, stated on Sunday.

“In the face of regional crises, the aerial industry of the Islamic Republic of Iran, by providing due services, has been a pioneer to promote balance across the region,” Abedzadeh said.

“Iran, for example, by opening its airspace to Afghan, Iraqi and Ukrainian flights, at the time of crisis, prevented disruptions in regional flights,” he said.

“Now, under the current crisis faced by Qatar, the Qatar Airways could use the Iranian airspace to conduct its flights,” he added.

Qatar has been forced to change its usual path over Saudi Arabia to Iran following Riyadh’s boycott of the Doha regime.
