Iranian airlines face fuel troubles

European oil companies British Petroleum (BP) and Shell have stopped fuelling Iranian aircrafts at UAE airports in line with US trade sanctions on Iran, forcing them to find alternative sources.


Sources at Air BP and Shell confirmed to papers that they are not fuelling Iranian aircraft.


However, Emirates National Oil Company, fuel provider to the aviation industry among others, said that it has not received any notification from the UAE government on Iranian sanctions that would hinder its business.
The company's spokesperson did not confirm whether it is supplying fuel to Iranian airlines, except Iran Air, the government's national carrier.


"We are not supplying any fuel to Iran Air," said Khalid Hadi, spokesman for the company. "Even if there are any sanctions, that would not be affected," he said.


Iranian airlines continue to fly in and out of UAE airports.


Dubai Airports, operator of Dubai International Airport, confirmed that Iranian airlines flying in and out of Dubai International continue to be refuelled.


Additionally, a senior official at the Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has denied a report that Iranian airlines are not being allowed to refuel at UAE airports.
