Belavia diverts flights from Iranian, Iraqi airspace


Belavia will temporarily divert flights from the Iranian and Iraqui airspace following the Ukrainian Airlines plane crash which killed all 176 people onboard near Teheran, the Belarusian airlines said in a statement. Other airlines have made a similar decision over aviation safety concerns.

Belavia operates only one flight above that region - a chartered flight Minsk-Dubai once a week. The next flight will depart Minsk on Friday, 10 January.
