U.S. fines Emirates $400,000 for flying over Iranian airspace in 2019

The US Transportation Department said that it fined Emirates airline $400,000 for operating flights over parts of the Iranian airspace in 2019.

The department said in July 2019, Emirates operated flights over parts of Iranian airspace, even though the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had barred flights because of heightened military activities and increased political tensions.

Emirates must pay half of the fine within 120 days and the rest will be waived if there are no further violations within one year.
