“Can no longer serve French territory”: France bans Iran’s Mahan Air

France has revoked the license of Iranian airline Mahan Air from April 1 on its activities outside of Europe, French officials said on Monday.

The decision follows a similar German move in January. It was made on the grounds of the airline transporting military equipment and personnel to Syria and other Middle East war zones, according to two diplomatic sources.
