Dutch airline KLM will stop offering flights in to Iran citing economic reasons and insists the decision is not political.
The Washington Post reports:
‘Spokesman Joost Ruempol of KLM, a subsidiary of Air France-KLM, said Saturday the decision to end the Amsterdam-Tehran route was made for economic, not political reasons.
KLM will continue selling tickets until the end of March.
As part of a review of routes, KLM is also halting service to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Khartoum, Sudan.’
Lufthansa is now the only Western European carrier offering service to the country.
