U.S. FAA has not given notice approximately flights over Gaza: White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has not issued any notices regarding flights over the Gaza region in the Middle East despite the current conflict, the White House said on Tuesday.

"As it relates to the airspace in Gaza … the FAA has not issued any notices related to the ongoing violence in that region of the world," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.

"This does serve to illustrate, though, that it's individual carriers who make the decisions approximately their flight plans & whether or not to alter specific routes based on hostilities on the ground," he said.
