In 2011 Bahrain closed its air route to Iran after announcing that it was no longer able to continue its flights to Iran and back.
Last week officials from the Bahraini civil aviation system paid visit to Iran, announcing that they were willing to resume the flights.
The independent newspaper Al Wasat reported Thursday that flights will resume Dec. 15 to the eastern Iranian city of Mashhad, The Daily Star says.
The Vice Chancellor of Iran’s Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammadali Noorian in interview with Fars said "The Bahraini had cancelled flights to Iran themselves. Last week they came to Iran and asked to resume air route.”
He added that Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization has agreed to the initiative.
The rout will reopen with 4 flights per week and in the case of favorable circumstances, the frequency will rise to 45.
