Iran aviation agency refutes claims alleging Berlin plans to ban Mahan Air
The spokesman for Iran's Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) on Sunday dismissed media reports alleging that Berlin intended to ban the country’s Mahan Air airline from using German airports in 2019, Trend reported citing Sputnik. Iran's Civil Aviation Organization has not received any report from the German officials on sanctions against Mahan Air and the German government's spokesman has said about the claim by Bild that he could not comment," Reza Jafarzadeh told the Fars News Agency. Jafarzadeh added that Mahan Air had been conducting flights to Germany for nearly 15 years, and had a six-month contract for winter flights with the country. The airline carries out six flights between Tehran and Germany per week: four flights from Duesseldorf and two more from Munich. Mahan Air was sanctioned by the US Treasury Department in October 2011. According to the US Treasury, the airline routinely transports fighters and equipment to Syria in order to support the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
