Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran, Iran
Dhaka: A new airline in Iran has received the approval from the country's Civil Aviation Organisation. And now it only awaits to secure the Air Operator Certificate that authorises commercial air transport operations, or the import of an aircraft.
Maqsoud Asadi-Samani, Secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines made the announcement recently.
He added that the new airline’s permit holder is a former senior official of CAO.
Speaking about the latest status of international flights, Asadi-Samani said, “IranAir has launched weekly flights to Amsterdam after the outbreak of coronavirus. The Dutch capital has introduced new protocols to protect travellers and air travel employees from the novel coronavirus."
For example, only passengers holding the residency permit of a European country are allowed to fly to the Netherlands.
"The Iranian flag carrier airline has also resumed regular flights to London and Paris.”
Spain has not issued any permits for regular flights from Tehran, except for occasional flights to return Iranian citizens to the country, he mentioned.
"Flights to East Asia, namely Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, are being operated by Mahan Airline."
Last week, IranAir operated a flight to Delhi and returned Iranian citizens to the Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran.
