Several airlines on Wednesday said they would be avoiding Iranian airspace or canceling flights in the wake of heightened tensions in the Middle East.

Singapore Airlines, Qantas, China Airlines, Lufthansa and Malaysia Airlines were among those which said they’re avoiding the Iranian airspace.

Meanwhile, Dubai-based Emirates and its sister airline flydubai canceled Wednesday flights to Baghdad.
