Airspace of Syria

Revision / Cancellation:
This CZIB is revised to extend the validity.
The original issue of this CZIB replaced and cancelled EASA SIB 2014-25R1 dated 07 April 2016.

Affected Airspace:
Syrian airspace, all altitudes.


This CZIB applies to operators.


This CZIB is issued on the basis of information available to EU Member States and EU institutions.
Due to the hazardous security situation, with the presence of terrorist organisations and ongoing
high intensity military operations, there is a risk of both intentional targeting and misidentification
of civil aircraft. The presence of a wide range of ground-to-ground and dedicated anti-aviation
weaponry poses a HIGH risk to operations at all flight altitudes.


Operators should take this information and any other relevant information into account in their
own risk assessments, alongside any available guidance or directions from their national authority
as appropriate.

This CZIB is valid until 04 April 2018.
