Iran Resumes Flights to/from Pakistan, France
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Civil Aviation Organization of Iran (CAOI) allowed air travels to and from Pakistan and France after dropping the two countries from red list due to the coronavirus pandemic.
CAOI Spokesman Mohammad Hassan Zibakhsh said that flights to and from Islamabad and Paris had been resumed on Tuesday after a two-month suspension.
“However, Iran will continue to enforce a tough ban on flights to 13 countries where the highly-infectious British variant of the coronavirus has not been fully contained,” Zibakhsh continued.
He said Pakistan and France will remain among the 26 countries which still have a high rate of infection to the virus, adding that flights to those countries will continue with restrictions.
In late April, Zibakhsh said that according to the Iranian health ministry’s decision all flights to and from India and Pakistan were prohibited.
