British Airways to relaunch direct London to Iran flights in July

British Airways to relaunch direct London to Iran flights in July

British Airways has confirmed it is relaunching direct flights from London to Iran – the first British airline to offer the service in four years.

Travelers will be able to fly directly from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Tehran from July 14 when the six-weekly service launches, IRNA reported.

The flights – available to book from February 3 – will then increase to daily flights from this winter.

Up until now, only the national carrier Iran Air has offered direct flights between London and Iran, as sanctions, travel warnings and poor relations have kept foreigners and investors away from the Islamic Republic.

Iran Air’s London services are limited due to restrictions on the airline using European airspace, so most British tourists en route to Iran have had to fly indirect, often via Istanbul.
