BA to Resume Flights to Iran

In a continuation of improving relations between Iran and the West, British Airways is set to resume commercial flights to Tehran on Thursday evening. A Boeing 777 jetliner will depart from London around 9 p.m. local time, marking the carrier’s first flight to Iran by the carrier since 2012. A spokesperson for the airline – which plans to resume the service six times per week – claims that the new offering has received “a huge amount of interest” from passengers.

Spare a thought for the several dual British-Iranian nationals like Kamal Foroughi imprisoned in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison on spurious charges and without consular representation. Kamal reached age 77 at the weekend, is going blind, and is now the world record holder for the longest period an EU citizen has been held in an Iranian jail. BA are obviously very quiet on their website about the risks of arbitrary detention highlighted on the FCO’s travel advice.
