Iran threatens to impound non-complying airlines
Iran has recently warned that airlines will be banned from flying into its airspace, unless they use the name Persian Gulf on their flight monitors.
Iran has been insistent that the name of the Gulf that separates them from their southern neighbours should be referred to correctly as the Persian Gulf, calling it the gulf has been a source of annoyance for Iranian authorities, calling it the Arabian Gulf infuriates them!
Airlines not complying to this will be prevented from entering Iranian airspace.
And if such an offence was repeated, foreign airliners would be grounded and refused permission to leave Iran.
