TEHRAN: As coronavirus cases rise in both India and Pakistan, Iran’s Ministry of Aviation banned passenger flights from the two countries in an attempt to stem the spread of the infection.

The decision was made by Iran’s Health Ministry and has been effective from Saturday midnight. There are no routine flights between Iran and India, and flights are operated occasionally, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) spokesperson told the Iranian agency. However, connecting flights between the countries have also been prohibited, he added.
