Iran’s airspace remains open to all international flights, including U.S. airliners, but most European countries refuse fuel to Iranian planes, an official has said.
“Iran’s sky is open to all countries, except Israel,” head of the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) Ali Abedzadeh said, Press TV reported on Tuesday.
Currently, American airplanes are also passing through the Iranian sky and Iran has not imposed restrictions on any country, Abedzadeh said.
However, “unfortunately, most European countries are refusing to supply fuel to Iranian aircraft and this creates problems for us,” he said.
Abedzadeh added, “We have plans to overcome this.”
