Air France to reopen Tehran route in April

Air France said Tuesday it is to resume flights from its Paris hub to Tehran, a route suspended in 2008 after Iran was hit with international sanctions over its nuclear ambitions, AFP reports.

“Air France is showing its ambition to develop its business in a country with dynamic growth, the European Union being Iran’s fourth-biggest economic partner,” the company said in a statement in revealing it would start three flights a week starting in April.

The move comes as the two countries look to strengthen commercial ties in the wake of last July’s landmark deal on Iran’s nuclear program following almost two years of talks.
