British Airways, Air France to stop flights to Iran

Following the sanctions on Iran imposed by US President Donald Trump, British Airways and Air France have announced they will end direct flights to Iran’s capital, Tehran, from next month. According to British Airways, its last outbound flight from London to Tehran will be on September 22, with the return flight scheduled for September 23. Air France will end flights from Paris to Tehran on September 18.

It must be recalled that Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May.

However, British Airways is suspending its London to Tehran service saying that the operation is currently not commercially viable and the Air France on the pretext of “the line’s weak performance.”
