We had this week in Prague A300 Iran Air on fuel stop scheduled FRA-IKA flights, does anybody know if in Frankfurt (or at which European airports) are fuel bans applied ?

Iranian reports according to which German airport had refused to refuel Iran Air planes have been dismissed.
The German ministry says a fuel ban on passenger flights would not fall within the emposed embargo.
Iran Air maintain their scheduled flights to FRA, CGN and HAM without any fuel related problems whatseoever.



I support the right to arm bears

Thanks for info. We have some gossip news, that they plan to use Prague for technical stops for cca 10 flights per week, so the question why Prague, is what we discuss last few days. If they wouldn´t have any problems with fueling, what is the reason for technical stop in Czechia? At least, at FRA they don´t get fuel.
Today and tomorrow they are scheduled for technical stops at VIE on flights from AMS, GOT and FRA, so I think, they have some fueling troubles in Western Europe. In Germany it can be just in FRA and maybe on other airports they are using different fuel companies or they can fly there and back without fueling...

They are being denied fuel in the UK for sure and have been routing the LHR-THR flights via Hamburg for some time

bmi are routing LHR-IKA flights via TBS. IKA-LHR flights are sometimes making it non stop with favourable winds and low loads, but on busy flights are also calling into PRG.

As I read in newspapers, it´s not embargo, it´s just RECOMMENDATION from US goverment, not to fuel iranian airplanes. So it seems, that most of fueling companies in EU follow this indirect ban. Except VIE and HAM...I hope it will bring more Iran Air planes to Prague.

It's a little more than a recommendation. Oil companies, which want to do business on US soil, shall not fuel Iranian planes.

If an oil company searches, produces, refines or sells oil in the USA, or if they ever want to be able to do so, then they don't fuel Iranian planes. Many airports have only that sort of fuel suppliers.



Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm

Hi Preben,
Thank you for the clarification. So we can thank for Iran Air planes to Russian owned fuel company at PRG airport

With so many hurdles to get over you have to give IR credit for keeping their aircraft serviced and flying under a embargo and for providing Iran with an air service with some very old aircraft. Might be a little bit of topic but how have they managed to keep an airline going under those condictiuons?

There is a fuel ban on all Iranian aircraft at AKL & at all ports that the oil company that I work for, where they have refuelling faciliates.

Even with the fuel ban, I doubt we'll see any down here, ever.

There is a separate fuel supplier in HAM to fuel the twice weekly IKA-HAM-IKA flights. In addition, we sometimes get flights from LHR, ARN, GOT and at least once even FRA. However, we have to make sure first that there is enough "Iran Air fuel" available in HAM. If that is not the case, the flights go via VIE instead of HAM.
