Iran's sky is safe, says minister

TEHRAN, Iran, Jan.23

Trend:

Iran has been a safe country and the aviation system in the country indicates that Iran has secure sky, said the Minister of Road and Urban Development.

"Iran is one of the countries that first installed all the necessary systems of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and has set up coordination with global aviation system; therefore, the country's sky has always been and will be the safe for flights," said Mohammad Eslami during his visit to the new terminal in Gorgan International Airport, Trend reports citing ILNA.

"With commissioning the domestic terminal in Gorgan Airport with the capacity to serve five planes, domestic and international flights will be separated," the official added.

"The expected growth of flights served at the Gorgan airport will help to increase the number of passengers by 10 times, while the number of passenger transportation will increase from 250,000 to 2 million passengers a year," Eslami said.

"Upgrading the aviation fleet while maintaining necessary safety is on our agenda, as we aim to ensure that flights can be operated in all weather conditions," he added.

Major international airlines canceled or re-routed flights in the Middle East after Iran attack on the US bases and the crash of Ukraine plane.

Air France, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines and Taiwan's EVA Air said they were avoiding the airspace of Iran and Iraq, and Singapore Airlines said it would not fly over Iran.

Emirates canceled flights between Dubai and Baghdad, where the Iranian general was killed by the US air raid.

Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines said they were conducting flights as usual. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic said they were monitoring the situation, but not yet diverted the flights.
