IranAir's Chairman Farhad Parvaresh said Iran would take legal actions if the International Air Transport Association (IATA) does not pay heed to negotiations.
He said IATA is sanctioning IranAir, adding, "Iran would take legal actions if IATA does not pay heed to negotiations." Parvaresh's remarks came following Iran and IATA negotiations on sanction against Iran's aviation industry.
"I have sent a couple of opposition letters to IATA and explained everything," Parvaresh told ISNA.
|IATA is an international trade body, created over 60 years ago by a group of airlines. Today, IATA represents some 230 airlines comprising 93% of scheduled international air traffic. The organization also represents, leads and serves the airline industry in general.|
He continued, "IATA enjoys more than 250 members and Iran is one of its old signatories which joined the organization 5 decades ago. IATA should have not yielded to the US pressures and imposed the sanction."
Saying it is not the first time Iran faces sanctions and it would not be the last one, he added, "We are sorry since aviation industry is not a political issue and we just transfer people across the world regardless of their nationalities."
Parvaresh went on to say, "We have found a solution to resolve IATA sanction. Flights are underway and we are selling tickets both inside and outside, but we are changing the selling ticket methods. Our connection to IATA and other aviation companies is cut and now we are trying to find another connection ways.
