Lufthansa to resume flights from Frankfurt to Tehran this month

German airline Lufthansa announced on Friday that it would resume flights from Frankfurt to Tehran from April 16.

Lufthansa had suspended flights in January 2020 after a Ukrainian airliner was shot down soon after take-off from Tehran.

In an emailed statement, the airline said it has since assessed security measures by Tehran with national and international authorities.

“The conditions for safe flight operations in Iranian airspace are currently in place,” it said.
