(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
TEHRAN, Iran, August 13. Iranian airlines will
no longer operate direct flights to Malaysia since Malaysian
airports are refusing to supply fuel to Iranian airplanes, said the
secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines Maghsoud Assadi
Samani, Trend reports citing ILNA.
Iran Air and Mahan Airline had direct flights from Tehran to
Kuala Lumpur but Malaysia is not supplying fuel to Iranian airlines
due to sanctions, he said.
Samani indicated that Iranian airlines would lose revenue by
leaving one of the South East Asian destinations which would have
extra costs on the country's aviation industry.
Iranian airline had 3 flights per week to Malaysia that were
halted during the COVID-19 outbreak and then resumed to 1 flight
per week before being finally stopped.
