Suspension of direct flights between Sweden and Iran due to coronavirus

At the request of the Public Health Agency of Sweden ("Folkhälsomyndigheten"), the Swedish Transport Agency has decided to temporarily withdraw Iran Air's permit for scheduled air services, due to the corona infection.

The Public Health Agency of Sweden deems a suspension of direct flights is necessary in order to minimise the risks of spreading the Covid-19 infection. The flight suspension takes immediate effect.

"Under the present circumstances, continuing to receive large groups of passengers from Iran would seriously hamper efforts to limit the spread of Covid-19 and increase the risk of a local spread of infection," says the Public Health Agency of Sweden's Director-General Johan Carlson.
