Air France-KLM suspends Paris-Tehran flights
Air France-KLM announces suspension of direct Paris-Tehran flights beginning at the end of October, citing economic conditions.
A spokesperson of the French-Dutch airline pointed to the economic slowdown as the reason behind the decision.
The company is going to compensate the Paris-Tehran route with increased Amsterdam-Tehran flights, the unnamed spokesperson told IRNA.
The weekly flights from Amsterdam to Tehran will increase from four to five. Passengers would then be able to use one of the 15 daily flights between Paris and Amsterdam, the Airline official continued.
The spokesperson noted that Air France-KLM would resume Paris-Tehran flights as soon as the economic situation improves.
Air France-KLM reported an important decrease in earnings Tuesday as the airlines struggle with the economic crisis and higher fuel prices.
Shares fell 12.8 percent on Thursday, after a miserable two-year forecast.
