The Sales Manager of the Germania Airline, Florian Stahl, announced the company's readiness to launch direct flights to Iran in early 2015.
"We started planning in this respect while there were (and still are) sanctions and we will keep planning,” Stahl said.

Stahl added that the airline aims to expand operations in Iran as long as this cooperation does not have any adverse consequences for the company resulting from the western sanctions imposed on Tehran.

"We are finalizing everything in this regard in collaboration with the German authorities and airline. Up to now, we have not seen any negative reaction from the international community against this decision,” he said.

Addressing the ceremony, Stahl said Iran and Germany have a long history of favorable relations. He added that the presence of a large number of Iranian families in Germany makes the establishment of the airline economically feasible.

"We intend to operate five direct regular flights from Berlin, Hamburg and Dusseldorf to the Iranian cities of Tehran and Mashhad every week, the first one of which will be operated on February 25, 2015, from Hamburg to Mashhad.”

Stahl noted that Germania airline operates flights to more than 140 countries.

Last month, Iran’s National Aviation Organization announced that a growing number of foreign aircraft carriers are willing to launch operation in Iran.

The organization said that, currently, thirty-three foreign airlines are active in Iran, transporting a total of three million passengers in the previous Iranian calendar year (March20, 2013-March 20, 2014).

The organization added that the security and safety of Iran’s airspace is one of the root causes of foreign carriers’ interest to operate in the country.
