KLM to suspend direct service to Tehran

Dutch-based KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced its decision to suspend its direct flights to Tehran, Iran as of 24 September, the company said.

As a result of the negative results and financial outlook for the Tehran operation, the last flight will take off from Amsterdam on 22 September 2018 and land at Schiphol on 23 September.

Passengers with a ticket for a flight from Amsterdam to Tehran or vice-versa on or after 24 September will be transferred to the most suitable alternative or financially compensated.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is the oldest scheduled airline in the world still operating under its original name. In 2016, the KLM Group operated worldwide flights with over 200 aircraft, generating EUR 10 billion revenues and employing 32.000 staff from its Amsterdam basis.
