Europe finally on board with US on Iran’s terror airline
UANI Research Director Daniel Roth writes: "In 2011, the United States designated Mahan Air as Iran’s ‘terrorist airline.’ As the Treasury designation noted, Mahan Air services the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Quds Force (IRGC-QF), providing “transportation, funds transfers and personnel travel services” to the fanatical terrorist arm of the Iranian government. It has taken an additional eight years for major Western allies to wake up and do something about these realities. In January 2019, Germany finally pulled the plug on Mahan Air’s Düsseldorf and Munich routes. France followed suit shortly after. And last week, after a battery of letters from United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) to the Civil Aviation Authority of Italy (ENAC), to Italian Senators and to Rome Airport, Italy became the third major European nation this year to ban Mahan Air from its airspace."
