What was the story of the suspension of Tehran-London flights?

According to Tejarat News, this morning, news was published that the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education had canceled the Iran-Britain flights. Shahram Adamnejad, Deputy Minister of Transport, Roads and Urban Development, said in this regard: “Considering the new circumstances in the case of Covid 19 disease in the United Kingdom, at the discretion of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and with the aim of preventing disease transmission and efforts.” To protect the health of the people, flights between Tehran and destinations in the United Kingdom will be suspended for two weeks.

However, it seems that foreign flights to the UK have not been canceled and we will have flights tomorrow. Abolghasem Jalali, Deputy Minister of Aviation and International Affairs of the National Aviation Organization, said in this regard: The last flight of Iran Air will be to London tomorrow, Tuesday (December 2), although this flight is only for passengers who intend to travel from Tehran to London. They go, take it, and return empty-handed to return.

He added: “Of course, the Iranian flight crew, which is about 14 people, boarded this plane in London, and after this flight, there will be no more flights to the UK to see what the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education and the National Corona Headquarters say.”

The Deputy Minister of Aviation and International Affairs of the National Aviation Organization continued: “Certainly, the health of the people is of paramount importance to the officials and airlines, and therefore after this flight, there will be no more flights to the UK and we are waiting to see the National Corona Headquarters.” And what decision will the Ministry of Health and Medical Education make next?
