EU allows Iran’s state carrier to resume flights in bloc

BRUSSELS- Iran’s state airline, which has just reached an agreement with Boeing Co to purchase new jetliners, can resume flights in the EU, the European Commission said on Thursday. Iran is dangling the prospect of significant business for Western planemakers as it emerges from decades of sanctions. While the European Commission, the EU’s executive, said Iranair could resume flights, some of the carrier’s aircraft would remain on the EU’s safety blacklist.
