Mahan Airlines Flight W50106 took off from Imam Khomeini International Airport at 6:55 local time to land in Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport 12:40 local time.
The plane Airbus A340 carried 106 passengers and crew. Mahan Air will operate flights to Paris regularly on Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. Before Mahan Air, only Iran Air was operating flights to Paris.
Officials say that more room for Iranian airlines in European airspace has been brought by the JCPOA implementation. Iran has still higher capacity and possibilities to extend flights to more and further destinations around the world which, however, will require an improved air fleet to meet the increasing demands of the situation.
