Saudi Airlines Redirect Flights To Avoid Dicey Gulf Of Oman, Strait Of Hormuz

Saudi Arabian Airlines has altered the path of its international flights away from the Gulf of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz.

The move comes after Iran shot down a high-altitude, unmanned U.S. drone.

The incident and its resulting political fallout has sparked concerns about a threat to the safety of commercial airlines.
