Iran pays 30 percent more for aviation partsKURDPA: Islamic Republic Airlines says sanctions on Iran are not only causing fueling problems, they have driven up the cost of aviation parts by 30 percent because foreign companies are banned from providing parts for Iranian airplanes.

Farhad Parvaresh, the head of Iran Air, said the fourth round of sanctions on Iran has made the day-to-day business of Iranian airlines very difficult, adding that over the past two years the main problem has been securing fuel for their airplanes.

He maintained that 12 points in Europe currently do not provide fuel for Iranian airplanes, adding that the UN resolution against Iran does not even call for a ban on providing fuel to Iranian airlines.

Parvaresh added that Iranian airplanes are now taking on enough fuel for their entire trip so that they can make their return voyage without refueling outside of the country. He criticized the European countries that refuse to provide Iranian airplanes with fuel, saying it goes against international conventions.

Parvaresh also reported that Iran has been paying an average of 30 percent more for aviation parts. He said that the International Air Transport Association (IATA) will put any international company that deals with Iran under punitive measures.

The head of Iran Air claimed that the sanctions against the Iranian aviation industry "endanger the lives of passengers."

Iran's nuclear program is under dispute by world powers, and these disputes have led to four rounds of UN sanctions and, more recently, severe unilateral sanctions by the European Union and the United States.
