Iran’s flag carrier Homa has announced that it is restoring a flight service between Tehran and Rome after the Italian government banned flights by Iran’s second largest airline Mahan Air in December.  

Homa, known internationally as Iran Air, said on Tuesday that flights two times a week to the Italian capital will begin on February 3, 2020.

According to a press release by the company, the new flight will be carried out on Mondays and Thursdays every week from Imam Khomeini airport (IKA) to Rome airport (FCO) and vice versa.

Iran Air is currently flying to Italy’s Milan on Tuesdays and Fridays every week.

Homa’s decision to reinstate its route to Rome comes less than a month after a similar flight service by Iran’s Mahan Air was canceled because of a ban imposed by the Italian authorities.

The ban came under pressure from the United States which has forced several other European countries to stop accommodating flights by Mahan.

Flights to Rome also comes amid Homa’s ongoing efforts to restore flights to two Swedish cities after authorities in the Nordic country decided to halt them following a major plane crash in Iran.
