Netanyahu commends BA, Air France, KLM decision to stop flights to Iran

British Airways and Air France said on Thursday they would halt flights to Iran from September for business reasons, months after US President Donald Trump announced he would re-impose sanctions on Tehran.
The airlines' decision was welcomed by Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.
"Today we learned that three major carriers, BA, KLM, and Air France, have discontinued their activities in Iran. That is good, more should follow, more will follow, because Iran should not be rewarded for its aggression in the region, for its attempts to spread terrorism far and wide ..." he told a news conference during a visit to Lithuania.
