He made the remarks while reacting to reports about ban on flying the Iranian airline’s fleet of Boeing and Fokker to the EU sky, Tasnim news agency reported.
He further said that the airline has always used Airbus 340 and 310 aircrafts in flights to Europe, adding the company uses Boeing 747 for long routes such as Beijing and Malaysia.
“We use our Fokker fleet for domestic flights and to the Persian Gulf countries only,” he said.
On June 16, the European Commission confirmed the partial lifting of a ban on Iran Air. The step will allow most of the airline’s planes to fly in and out of the EU territory, except its fleets of Boeing 747-200s, Boeing 747SPs and Fokker 100s.
