Emirates and flydubai have cancelled flights following the Iran crisis

Emirates Airline and flydubai have both cancelled flights to and from Baghdad in Iraq, following the missile attacks on US-led forces from Iran. 

Australian airline Qantas has also diverted aircraft paths away from the area, for safety reasons. 

A spokesperson for Emirates said: "Emirates flights EK 943 from Dubai to Baghdad and flight EK 944 from Baghdad to Dubai on January 8 have been cancelled for operational reasons."

It comes as tensions between the United States and Iran heighten.
