British Airways to resume direct flights to Iran

British Airways will resume direct flights from London to Tehran later, after suspending them four years ago. It will be the first direct flight by a UK carrier to Iran since 2012, when the route became commercially unviable because relations had broken down. It follows the lifting of some sanctions against Iran in January and the re-opening of the British embassy in the Iranian capital in 2015. BA said it will run flights six days a week from London Heathrow. The Boeing 777 will depart just after 21:00 BST on Thursday. Air France resumed flying to Tehran in April after a seven-year break.
