Iran sent more than 300 missiles and drones to attack Israel this Sunday. Reports indicated that the attack was in retaliation to the Israeli strike on an Iranian diplomatic compound in Syria on April 1, 2024. Due to the military escalation between the two countries, bordering regions including Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, and others had temporary closed off their air spaces.

This resulted in many flights to be re-routed over Saudi Arabia

Although several international and domestic flights were canceled, the Kingdom had seen an instant surge in flights flying over the country in a short amount of time.
