EgyptAir said, in a statement, it will resume flights to various airports in these countries, urging customers to contact its call centre on 1717 from inside Egypt or visit its website for inquiries.

Customers can also contact EgyptAir at (+97142306666) from outside Egypt.

The Iranian attacks overnight involved hundreds of drones and missiles, disrupting flights across the Middle East.

Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon announced a temporary closure of their airspaces before reopening them a few hours later.

Meanwhile, Kuwait diverted some flights to avoid areas of tension.

The closures of airspaces have also forced Emirati airlines to reroute or cancel some of their flights.

The Egyptian cabinet denied on Sunday the emergency closure of its airspace due to the attacks, affirming regular operation of flights at various Egyptian airports.

In the wake of the Iranian military operation, Egypt and several countries, including Russia, and China, urged all parties involved to exercise utmost restraint.
