Tehran (IP) - A member of the Development Commission of Iran’s parliament said that despite threats, sanctions, and Iranophobia by the enemies, foreign airlines could not ignore Iran's skies.

Iran PressIran News: Adel Najafzadeh, a member of the Iranian parliament’s Commission on Civil, stated that flights over Iran's airspace in one month (August 22 to September 21, 2020)  had increased by 23% compared to the same period of the previous month (July 22 to August 21, 2020).

"A total of 10,376 foreign flights passed through Iran's airspace during the month, which figure stood at 8,431 in the previous month," he added.

Najafzadeh added, fortunately, despite all the blackout and media propaganda of the enemies to show Iran's airspace unsafe, many foreign airlines use Iranian airspace for their flights.

  Emphasizing that the Iranian sky is one of the safest air routes for aircraft traffic, Mr. Najafzadeh said the country's geopolitical situation had made crossing Iran's airspace very economical for foreign airlines.

Calling Iran as the world's logistics highway, Najafzadeh added that Iran was one of the main regional and international transportation actors.
