US AIRLINES have been warned against flying over Iran as Tehran embarks on increased military activity in the region amid growing World War 3 tensions.

In one of a number of dangerous events listed by the Federal Aviation Administration, a US civil operator was intercepted by fighter jets in the skies above Iran last December.

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran’s airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said “without seeming alarmist”, the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran’s airspace.

In an email to client operators the US-based group said: “Although the reopening of Iraqi airspace in November last year has provided additional routing options, there is no perfect route in the region, and operators must consider their preference for Iraq vs Iran.”

The US Department of State has already issued guidance advising its citizens not to travel to Iran due to the risk of arbitrary arrest and detention.

Flight Service Bureau said that could present problems in the event of an unplanned landing in Iran for medical or technical reasons.

Similar advice is issued for travel to Iraq, amid the risk of terrorism and armed conflict.
