China Southern Airlines canceled a flight between Urumqi and Tehran.

Major Chinese airlines on Wednesday decided to cancel direct flights to Iran or re-route other flights to avoid the airspaces of Iran and Iraq, citing security concerns after Iran's missile strike at US bases in Iraq.

China Southern Airlines canceled a flight between Urumqi, capital of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and Tehran, a source close to the matter told the Global Times on Wednesday.

The flight had been scheduled to depart at 8:35 pm on Wednesday and arrive at Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport at 9:15 pm Wednesday local time.
