A Bahraini official has conformed that the ban on flights from Bahrain to Iraq, Iran and Lebanon has not been lifted.
The ban remains even though the state of national safety, the emergency laws, imposed in mid-March, was lifted on June 1, Abdul Rahman Al Gaood, the undersecretary for civil aviation, said.
The official told Al Bilad daily on Monday that no Bahrain-based plane could currently fly to any of the three countries.
The civil aviation imposed the restrictions to complain about the “blatant interference’ in its domestic affairs by Iraqi, Iranian and Lebanese officials in relation with the political turmoil that hit the country.
Bahrain is home to two airlines, Gulf Air and Bahrain Air. Gulf News
