New Delhi: The DGCA on Wednesday asked Indian airline companies to remain vigilant and take all precautions in the airspace over Iran, Iraq, Gulf of Oman and waters of Persian Gulf, hours after Ukrainian International airlines carrying 170 passengers crashed near Tehran in Iran.
“We had held meetings with the concerned Airlines and have sensitised them to remain vigilant and take all precautions,” said a senior official of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Wednesday morning.
US aviation regulator FAA has also asked all US airlines to stop operating in the airspace over Iraq, Iran, and the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman due to “events in the Middle East”.
