TEHRAN, Feb. 11 (MNA) – An aviation official, while rejecting claims on the halt in flights of Hindi airlines to Iran due to US sanction, said the Asian country never performed flights to Iran.

Deputy Director of Administrative Affairs in Tehran Imam Khomeini Airport City (IKAC) Kourosh Fatahi said Hindi airliners have never scheduled any flights to IKA refuting the news by some media on stoppage or halt in flight timetable of Indian companies to Iran.

“Indeed, Iranian airliners perform regular flights to various Indian cities while Indian airplanes have never landed in Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA).

Economic Times, India's leading business newspaper, had earlier claimed that Indian airlines had stopped their flights to Iranian airports following Donald Trump’s tough stance against Iran and six other Islamic countries. The media had also maintained that Hindi airlines had prepared a substitute program comprising flights from New Delhi to Almaty, Tashkent of Bahrain though the schedules had not been finalized.

Kourosh Fatahi reiterated that Indian airliners have never operated flights to IKA and all passengers to and from India are carried by Iranian companies.
