Iran Extends Ban on London Flights Due to Hike in Coronavirus Spread

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran extended a travel ban on flights to and from London due to a surge in the coronavirus disease spread in the UK.

"The travel ban will remain until February 18," Head of Civil Aviation Organization of Iran (CAOI) Touraj Dehqani Zangeneh said.  

He pointed out that all the Iranian and foreign airlines and travel agencies have already been informed about the imposition of the ban so that they will not bring any passenger from London to Tehran either by direct or connection flights.

Iran had banned flights to and from Britain on December 21, 2020, as a new COVID-19 variant was found in the UK.
