DUBAI: Dubai’s flydubai airline on Friday canceled flights to Iran after receiving an official alert, a statement said. In line with the issued NOTAM (notice to air missions), the flights to Iran have been halted, according to the statement. One flight which had already left for Tehran returned to Dubai after Iran’s airport was closed, it added.

Flights were suspended across swathes of Iran as the state media reported explosions in the central province of Isfahan. Flight-tracking software showed commercial flights avoiding western Iran, including the city of Isfahan, and skirting the capital to the north and east.

There was no immediate comment from Dubai’s state-owned Emirates airline, flydubai’s sister carrier, which was operating several of the flights.
