Iran Air Resumes Refueling in W. Europe

Iran Air, the national flag carrier, has gradually resumed refueling at airports in western Europe following the lifting of international sanctions on January 16.
Aviation Iran reports Iran Air flights originating out of Paris Orly have been able to take on-board fuel at the airport as of January 19.
Previously, when serving London Heathrow, Paris, Frankfurt Int’l, Cologne/Bonn, Amsterdam, Hamburg Fuhlsbuttel, Gothenburg Landvetter and Stockholm Arlanda, Iran Air was forced to load enough fuel to cover the outbound as well as part of the inbound sector of its flights.
Technical stops were often made in eastern European airports such as Belgrade, Budapest and Prague to top up when necessary resulting in longer flights, extra cost and  inconveniences to passengers.
Following the lifting of international economic sanctions, the Iranian government announced on Tuesday that it is going to purchase 114 Airbus jets to renovate the aging fleet.
The sanctions had undermined handcuffed Iran’s trade activity, including purchases of new aircraft, and were lifted after Iran followed through on its promise to dismantle sections of its nuclear program.
