Rouhani wants direct flights to U.S. from Iran

After 34 years of an embargo that prevents direct flights from Iran to the United States, the President of the Iran Republic wants to reinstate direct flights.

The problem with this is that the embargo prevents Iran from buying American-built aircraft unless it does so through a third party. European Airbus is also banned from selling to Iran. The newest planes that Iran currently has are the Boeing 747SP jets owned since the embargo took effect.

In the late ‘70s, these SP (special performance) jets flew the farthest of any other aircraft. Iran bought a bunch of them and used them to fly a non-stop trip to New York from Tehran. The trip was around 6,100 miles.

If Iran does start offering non-stop Iran-to-U.S. flights, it will probably be to JFK.

The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
