WASHINGTON - The United States said on Friday it would allow foreign airlines to fly US-made aircraft to Iran, providing greater assurance to aviation companies as Iran tries to re-establish trade and business links following the lifting of sanctions.

The US Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control on Friday issued a license allowing US-made planes to have "temporary sojourn" in Iran, meaning airlines such as Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, or others flying frequently to Iran are expressly allowed to use US-made planes, or planes with US parts, to fly there.
