British Airways discloses suspension of its flights to Iran from London

British Airways has revealed it will be suspending its flights to Tehran, Iran, as the route is no longer “commercially viable”.

The airline currently offers direct flights from London Heathrow, but these will be suspended in September.



A spokesperson for the airline confirmed that the last outbound flight to Tehran will take off on September 22, and the last inbound flight from Tehran will take off the next day on September 23.

As for passengers who have already booked flights on the route and planned to travel, the airline confirmed that it is currently looking to alternative options and working with partner airlines so they can offer rebooking options.

However if there are no flights that work for passengers affected, the airline has said it will offer them a full refund, or the chance to travel before the suspension comes into effect.

British Airways had resumed the direct route from London to Tehran back in 2016, when sanctions on flights to Iran were relaxed

Until now the airline had been offering up to six flights a week, but it seems there has not been enough uptake from passengers.

Passengers who are looking for direct flights to Iran from the UK won’t have many alternative options; currently only IranAir offers direct flights.

However, there are a host of airlines which offer flights to Tehran with a stopover; Emirates, Air France, Qatar Airways and Lufthansa to name a few.
