FAA has warned U.S. air carriers and commercial flight operators should “exercise caution when flying into, out of, within, or over the Tehran FIR.”

In a published guidance the FAA said, the commercial flights should weigh the risk of making an emergency lading in Iranian Airports as well as risk of being targeted by Surface to Air missiles.

Russian air-launched cruise missiles fired from over Iran at targets in Syria, and Russian sea-launched cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea pose threats to civil aviation, as does Iranian surface-to-surface missile fire from Western Iran, aimed at ISIS positions in the region.
