British Airways to suspend flights between London and Tehran

Dutch carrier KLM said last month that it was also suspending Tehran flights due to "negative results and financial outlook". The airline said it was in discussions with partner airlines to offer customers rebooking options, or would offer full refunds.

British Airways on Thursday said it would suspend its London to Tehran service from next month as it was no longer "commercially viable".
"We are suspending our London to Tehran service as the operation is currently not commercially viable," said the flagship carrier.
The last outbound flight to Tehran will be on September 22, and the last inbound flight from Tehran will be on September 23, it added.
The airline said the decision had nothing to do with US President Donald Trump's imposition of new sanctions on Iran, which has affected foreign businesses operating in the country, with many pulling out altogether.
Dutch carrier KLM said last month that it was also suspending Tehran flights due to "negative results and financial outlook".
The airline said it was in discussions with partner airlines to offer customers rebooking options, or would offer full refunds.

The duration of the suspension period remains unknown.
British Airways made the following statement : “We are suspending our London to Tehran service as the operation is currently not commercially viable.
“We are sorry for any disruption this may cause to our customers' travel plans and we are in discussions with our partner airlines to offer customers rebooking options.
“Alternatively, they will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to bring their flights forward.”
British Airways suspended the same service in October 2012 due to political instability in Iran, resuming the route in September 2016.
The decision follows Dutch carrier KLM, which announced last month that it would suspend its Tehran flights due to “negative results and financial outlook”.
UK tour operator Wild Frontiers is making alternative flight arrangements for its Iran-bound customers.
Jonny Bealby, Wild Frontier founder, described the suspension as “a massive shame".
“We have sent over 1,500 people to Iran without incident over the last 10 years,” he adds.
"The great thing about travel is it breaks down borders and transcends geopolitical disputes. Time and time again our clients return saying the Iranian people were the friendliest they had ever met. The Persian hospitality is legendary,” says Bealby.
