Arabic press review: Qatari airplane ‘escaped Iranian missiles’ in Tehran

Al-Arabiya reports that Qatar Airways flight QR491 escaped the fate of the Ukrainian airplane that was shot down by mistake near Tehran last week (AFP)

About two hours before the Ukrainian flight took off, Qatar Airways flight QR491 flew from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport to Doha without incident, the outlet reported.

On Saturday, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) urged airlines to avoid Iran’s airspace, following an earlier recommendation that airlines fly at least 25,000 feet or above in Iranian airspace.
