Deputy Aviation and International Affairs Chief of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization said on Wednesday that British Airways will resume its regular weekly London-Tehran flights in two months.
Mohammad Khoda-Karami announced the news quoting the representatives of British Airways as saying so in their previous day’s visit to the CAO.
He said that currently the Iranian Airlines, HOMA, is shouldering the direct Tehran-London regular weekly flights as the British Airways had halted the route five years ago amid the intensifying anti-Iranian sanctions at the time.
‘The related memorandum of understanding was signed between the two countries’ a while ago,’ added the CAO official.
Khoda-Karami said that the other European airlines Air France and KLM, too, have announced readiness to resume direct Iran flights in near future and maximum within the next three months.
He also said that Spanish, Japanese and Malaysian (Air Asia) airlines have announced readiness to resume direct Iran flight on a regular weekly basis.
Roads and Rural Development Minister Abbas Akhuni had earlier announced that Iran welcomes aviation cooperation with all countries, save for the Zionist regime’s El Al airlines.
