British Airways to end direct flights to Iran in September
24 Aug 2018

AP — British Airways says it will end its direct flights to Iran’s capital in September as “the operation is currently not commercially viable.”

The decision announced Thursday comes after President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and began restoring U.S. sanctions.

Air France said it would end flights from Paris to Tehran on Sept. 18.

British Airways said its last flight to Tehran will be Sept. 22, with the return on Sept. 23. The airline had resumed direct flights to Tehran in September 2016. Service was suspended in October 2012 as relations deteriorated between Britain and Iran.
