Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization has announced that passenger flights between Iran and Saudi Arabia will resume after the issuance of official permits, following the restoration of ties between Tehran and Riyadh after seven years.

The resumption of flights will depend on formal authorization from the aviation authority.

Spokesperson of the Civil Aviation Organization Jafar Yazarlou said that “after studying the issue, the necessary and official permits for these flights will be issued, and flights will be carried out between the two countries.”

Yazarlou also revealed that the facilitation of flights for pilgrimage to the holy Iranian city of Mashhad was one of the items of the recent Iran-Saudi agreement, Tasnim reported.

After a series of intensive negotiations hosted by China, Iran and Saudi Arabia finally reached an agreement on Friday to restore diplomatic relations, re-open embassies, and missions within two months. According to a joint statement, the two countries highlighted the importance of respecting each other’s national sovereignty and refraining from interfering in their internal affairs.
