    With Iranian missile strikes bombarding Israel on Saturday, the airspace over the Mideast has been shut down and a host of decisions have been made to divert and cancel flights. 

    United Airlines canceled its Newark to Tel Aviv flights on Saturday. The airlines had just resumed its service to Tel Aviv early last month after suspending Israel flights following the Hamas attacks last October. 

    Jordan and Iraq have also closed their airspace, according to Jordanian state-owned media news outlet Al Mamlaka.

    “We are closely monitoring the situation and will make decisions on upcoming flights with a focus on the safety of our customers and crews,” United said in a statement. The carrier is the only U.S. airline to have resumed service to Israel since October. 

    Delta was scheduled to restart flights to Tel Aviv on June. 7. American Airlines never resumed service to Israel. 

    United also canceled its flight from Washington Dulles International Airport to Amman, Jordan on Saturday night, “due to unrest in the Middle East.”

    Airlines also canceled service scheduled for Sunday. 

    Israel’s El Al cancelled 14 Sunday flights and Emirates Airline canceled its Dubai-Amman flight scheduled for Sunday. Air France’s Israel service was canceled for Sunday and British Airways canceled its two flights to Tel Aviv on Sunday and scrubbed a flight to Amman, Jordan.
