The Civil Aviation Organization of Iran (CAOI) has lifted the ban on aviation travel to the two nations, which had been on the country’s “red list” for many weeks.
“Iran will continue to implement a strict restriction on flights to 13 nations where the highly-infectious British strain of the coronavirus has not been completely contained,” said Mohammad Hassan Zibakhsh, a spokesman for the Central Authority of Islamic Revolution.
IranAir, the country’s flag airline, will restart service to Paris on July 27 and remain in service until November 29.
Mondays at 5:55 a.m., Flight 733 will depart from Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran and land in Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport at 9:30 p.m.
However, despite the reinstatement of flights to Pakistan and France, Iran has still listed these nations among 26 others that have a very high risk of viral infection, adding that flights to those countries would continue to be subject to stringent restrictions.
