Int’l Airlines Prepare to Resume Flights to Tehran

Foreign airlines will soon be reestablishing flights to Tehran following the lifting of sanctions against Iran.
Mohammad Khodakarami, deputy head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization, said on Thursday the agency is engaged in talks with British Airways officials who are in Tehran to discuss the resumption of flights to Tehran.
Khodakarami added that French and Dutch airlines have also expressed interest in doing so, AP reported.
Air France has announced that after seven years, it will resume flying to Tehran in April 2016.
KLM has not announced any concrete plans about resuming flights to Iran.
European airlines cut off their flights to Tehran following the imposition of western sanctions on Iran over its nuclear energy program. Currently, Iran Air has three flights per week to Tehran and two weekly flights to Paris and Amsterdam.
Last week, Iran announced that it is also reviewing the possibility of establishing a direct flight to the United States. If established, it would be the first such flight in more than 30 years.
