The sky is safe
POTUS Donald Trump announced military strikes at Syrian chemical weapons sites on Friday evening. On Saturday, US launched more than 118 missiles.
American Airlines’ Dallas-Beijing, Dallas-Hong Kong, and Chicago-Beijing aircraft stopped in US to refuel because the plane can’t fly unceasingly without flying over Russian airspace.
Europe’s air traffic control agency warned aircraft flying over Syria about the possible launch of air strikes. American Airlines resumed flying over Russia after having rerouted flights on Saturday due to “global geopolitical issues” related to Syrian strike.
“The team at American regularly monitors global geopolitical issues and makes changes to aircraft routings when warranted. We operated our normal schedule April 15,” American Airlines told Reuters.
