Air France will resume passenger flights to Iran in April


Flights from Paris to Tehran will be operated three times a week from the capital airport Charles de Gaulle, the company said.

MOSCOW, 8 Dec. French airline Air France from April 2016, will resume direct passenger air service to Iran.

In a statement the carrier says that flights from Paris to Tehran will be operated three times a week from the capital airport of a name of Charles de Gaulle.

Direct passenger air service between France and Iran was aborted in 2008 due to economic reasons on the background of international sanctions against Iran because of suspicions of developing nuclear weapons.

Iran and the six international negotiators on the night of July 14, reached a historic agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom. Lengthy negotiations culminated in the Joint comprehensive plan of action, which will completely withdraw from Iran’s previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UNSC, U.S. and EU in exchange for the verification of the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program.
