Iran Announced The Resumption Of Regular Weekly Flights With China

Air traffic between Tehran and Guangzhou is resumed every week, according to the Secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines Magsud Asad Samani.

"One of the changes is the launch of weekly flights to China (Tehran - Guangzhou)," ISNA quoted him as saying. Samani added that "flights to China will not be available to everyone." "Only those who have a residence permit or citizenship of this country, as well as a work or study visa, will be able to fly to China," he said.

Regular flights between Iran and China were suspended after the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in the Islamic Republic in February. Tehran has not closed its air, sea and land borders with other countries, but several States have temporarily banned communication with Iran.

On July 19, the Turkish authorities decided to stop the process of resuming direct flights with Iran, which was planned for July 21. The decision is connected with the aggravation of the epidemic in the Islamic Republic, associated with the beginning of a new wave of coronavirus spread in the country.
