KLM to suspend direct flights to Tehran

For commercial reasons, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has decided to suspend its direct flights to Tehran, Iran, at least for the time being. as of 24 September.

The airline has said that because of the negative results and the bleak financial outlook for the Tehran operation, it will halt the direct route with effect from 22 September this year.  Whilst the airline says the suspension of service is a temporary measure, it will not give a date for the possible resumption of services. 

The last flight will depart from Amsterdam on 22 September 2018 and the last return sector will land in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport the next day.  The airline assures passengers with tickets for a flight from Amsterdam to Tehran or vice-versa on or after 24 September that they will be transferred to the most suitable alternative or financially compensated.
