British Airways to suspend flights to Tehran next month
British Airways will suspend flights between London Heathrow and Tehran from September citing commercial viability of the route.
“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.”
The airline said its last outbound service will operate on September 22, with the final inbound flight returning on September 23.

British Airways relaunched flights to the Iranian capital in September 2016 following a four years hiatus.
It is not clear whether the flight suspension is due to the collapse of Iranian currency and soaring food prices following President Trump’s re-imposition of sanctions on the country.
