Air France expands non-flyover area over North Korea after jet narrowly missed missile

  Air France has expanded its non-flyover area over North Korea after a passenger plane carrying 323 people narrowly avoided colliding with a missile launched by Kim Jong-un’s state.

British Airways has not flown over North Korean airspace for a number of years.

Some FIR regions (airspace) have blanket bans where no  European commercial aircraft use that airspace such as Libya and Iraq, however there are other FIR’s where individual airlines risk assess and decide whether to transit particular countries airspace or not.
