Ops Update: How the Iran/U.S. conflict is impacting business aviation
As a result of the recent escalation of military conflict between the United States and Iran, the Federal Aviation Administration has released several NOTAMs prohibiting U.S.-registered aircraft from operating in the Bagdad FIR, IRAN, the Gulf of Oman, and the Persian Gulf unless they’ve received U.S. government or FAA authorization or are facing an emergency situation.
Our Universal trip support teams are actively checking all customer flights operating in the region and are available to discuss alternative flight route options.
The link to the official NOTAMs are below. If you have any questions, please reach out to your team directly.
