British Airways has decided to stop flying over war-torn Iraq.
The decision came after America's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today issued a Notice to Airmen (Notam) "restricting US operators from flying in the airspace above Iraq due to the hazardous situation created by the armed conflict".
Another UK carrier, Virgin Atlantic Airways, had already stopped flying over Iraq, while other airlines which are bypassing the troubled Middle East country include Air France and Dubai-based Emirates.
BA had been continuing to use Iraqi airspace in recent days while reviewing its position on a daily basis.
BA uses Iraq airspace to reach such destinations as Dubai and Doha in Oman.
