MNA – A group of Iranian nationals stranded in Bulgaria and other Balkan countries due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, left the country for Tehran on Sunday evening.
The third group of Iranian nationals who had been stranded in Bulgaria and other Balkan countries due to the cancelation of flights as a precautionary measure against the COVID-19 outbreak returned home by a Qeshm Air flight from Bulgarian capital to Tehran on Sunday with the coordination and follow-up of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Sofia.
Qeshm Air announced in June that it will send some special flight to the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, to return stranded Iranians due to coronavirus pandemic.
