Airspace restrictions

Thanks @Hardlanding_Hussain.
@InfiniteFlightDeck If you read the text before the list of airspace restrictions I stated that this topic was “aimed at members looking for a more realistic Infinite Flight experience”, this was not created to shine light on any political debates. I’m sure people would be most understanding, but thanks for the point :)

also air india regularly uses saudi air space in bound to TLV so not sure where that came from … ELAL and air india are now allowed to fly over the Arabian peninsula enroute to TLV as well as outbound

This community is so culturally diverse, I’d love to travel Israel one day. Huge day for EL AL as the airline commences its first flight to Abu Dhabi.

I always thought that they couldn’t fly through Saudi airspace. If that’s the case then is it true they can’t fly through Indonesia, Malaysia, and Pakistan?

As for Qatar Airways, it is only limited to two air corridors in the Bahrain FIR. QR uses the northwesterly corridor to get to/from Kuwait and its Iranian, European/Turkish, and North American destinations, whilst the northeasterly corridor is used to get to/from its African, South American, Omani, Indian Subcontinent, and to its East/Southeast Asian/Australian destinations.

Emirates, Etihad, and flydubai occasionally fly through Iranian airspace to get to their European and North American (EK/EY) destinations.

Saudia, under any circumstances (especially in the Expert Server!) should not fly to/through Israeli airspace or spawn in LLBG (or any Israeli airport), let alone other Middle Eastern carriers like Gulf Air, Etihad, Emirates, Oman Air, and Qatar Airways, for political reasons.

The reasoning of this topic are mostly politically motivated in real life (ICAO/local civil aviation regulations), but are essential for realism, especially in the Expert Server.

As mentioned by the author, the thread is aimed towards IF players looking for a realistic in-game experience.

for now it seems that leal will be able to continue to fly through saudi air space but its uncertain … here are the countries which israeli registered aircraft are banned from flying over Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen.(unsure of the saudi airspace though)

Most probably El Al is limited to just one air corridor only in the Red Sea via OEJD (Jeddah FIR) to get to Bangkok and South Africa.

Hello!

Ok, thank you. I wasn’t criticising this. I am one of those who will use this. The reason I said that was because I thought it may not have been allowed. Obviously it’s fine though.

@InfiniteFlightDeck No need to worry, sorry if that came off a bit passive aggressive. I have considered your idea and have corrected one of the points regarding the Himalayas. I hope this was useful :)

Thanks so much, I appreciate the help. If you check back now I have corrected the point regarding Israeli flights.
