KLM resumes flying over Iran

Safety is awarded the highest priority at KLM. KLM uses a security management system to analyze risks and thus determine safe flight paths. Substantiated by such analyses, it is once again safe to fly over Iran. This decision is also based on the information shared within the Dutch group of experts that unites all Dutch airlines, the intelligence services, the NCTV counter-terrorism unit, the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. The British and German governments have also issued a notice to airmen (NOTAM), stating that commercial airlines can once again fly safely over Iran

A KLM statement issued and published on Thursday said that the company had reached the security assessment that its planes can resume flying over Iran.

“KLM uses a security management system to analyze risks and thus determine safe flight paths,” said the statement, adding, “Substantiated by such analyses, it is once again safe to fly over Iran. Carriers such as Qatar Airways never stopped flying over Iran after the incident, insisting the airspace is totally safe. Iranian authorities have also ensured that there would be no risks for civilian flights passing through the country.

The KLM statement said the company had restored flight routes through Iran after obtaining adequate information from intelligence, military and political sources in the Netherlands.

It said that the European Union, along with Britain and Germany, has issued fresh notifications known as NOTAM ensuring the commercial airlines that they could again use the airspace above Iran.

However, other major European airlines, including the Air France-KLM, of which the KLM is a subsidiary, have yet to officially announce resumption of flights through the Iranian airspace.

The Latest KLM Flight to Iran

The Dutch company said the main reason for stopping flights to Iran was because of business problems and the economy was not economical and announced that the aircraft would depart Iran on its final flight on September 11 and leave Tehran for Amsterdam the following day. This will mean the end of KLM flights to Iran.
