Iranian airliners to resume flights from UAE: Mousavi

MNA – The Spokesperson of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi said on Thursday that thanks to conducted negotiations and issued permits, Iranian airliners will soon resume flights from the United Arab Emirates.

Answering a question about the sudden and unannounced halting of Iranian flights from and to the United Arab Emirates, Mousavi said the Iranian ministry has done all its efforts to bring back Iranians from Emirates and resume the flights in near future.

UAE halted all Iran flights over coronavirus outbreak after Kuwait and Bahrain reported coronavirus cases in people returning from Iran.
