Iran’s flag carrier IranAir will resume direct flights between Tehran and Rome after four years of suspension and under a new agreement reached between aviation authorities of Iran and Italy.
Iran’s official IRNA news agency said IranAir’s Tehran-Rome flights will resume on July 14.
IRNA’s London office said in a report that the route relaunch had been finalized during a meeting between Iran’s civil aviation chief Mohammad Mohammadi Bakhsh and his Italian counterpart Alessio Quaranta. The report did not elaborate on when and where the meeting had been held.
It said Mohammadi Bakhsh and Quaranta signed a revised version of the aviation cooperation agreement between Iran and Italy while emphasizing the need for increased flights between the two countries to help boost tourism and economic ties.
Under the new agreement, the IranAir will also increase the number of its current flights between Tehran and the Italian city of Milan, said the report.
