Etihad Airways will stop flights to the Iranian capital Tehran on Jan. 24, the latest route to be dropped as the Abu Dhabi airlines pursues a new review strategy, Reuters news reported.

According to an airline spokeswoman, Etihad’s five weekly flights to Iran’s capital will be reduced to two a week between December 25 and January 23, before it suspends the route entirely on January 24.

While she did not say why the route was dropped, she said in a statement that affected passengers could switch to an alternative travel date between Dec. 25 and Jan. 23 or be refunded.
