Iranian Official: Civil Aviation to Survive US SanctionsIranian Official: Civil Aviation to Survive US Sanctions

Iran’s civil aviation industry will survive any unfair sanctions imposed on the industry, said the spokesman of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization in reaction to US administration’s Thursday decision on imposing sanctions on several Iranian and Turkish entities due to claims of links with four Iranian airlines. 
“Various sanctions have been imposed on Iran’s civil aviation, but the industry has managed to live on … Iran will make use of its experience in the past years,” Reza Jafarzadeh told IRNA on Friday. 
The nine companies and individuals targeted were linked to Mahan Air and Meraj Air, the US Treasury Department said in a statement. The list also included 31 aircraft belonging to Meraj, Mahan, Pouya and Caspian airlines. The US Treasury warned those who grant landing rights and provide general services to these aircraft as “they could be exposed to US sanctions”.
