TEHRAN, Jun. 20 (MNA) – After implementation of JCPOA, European airports have granted access to EU airspace for Iranian airplanes.Mahan Airlines Flight W50106 took off from Imam Khomeini International Airport at 6:55 local time to land in Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport 12:40 local time.

The plane Airbus A340 carried 106 passengers and crew. Mahan Airline will operate flights to Paris regularly on Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. Before Mahan Airline, only Iran Air was operating flights to Paris.
