Switzerland Refuses to Refuel Iran Air Planes

Switzerland’s Federal Office of Civil Aviation announced that it will no longer supply fuel for Iran Air’s weekly flights from Tehran to Geneva, joining several European Union countries in refusing to give jet fuel to the airline. The United States has pressured several oil companies to stop providing fuel to Iran’s flag carrier.

Flights from Iran to Europe typically stop in Belgrade or Budapest, where they are able to refuel. In retaliation Iran has stopped refueling western planes in Tehran.
