Iran's state airline Iran Air Wednesday rejected a report on the probable halt of the airline's direct flights to the Japanese capital of Tokyo, Iranian official IRNA news agency reported.

"No decision has been made so far to halt Iran Air's flights to Tokyo," Iran Air Spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh was quoted as saying.

The Iranian national airline had "only decided to reduce its reservation for Tehran-Tokyo flights as of Oct. 26 due to the heavy flight traffic in that route," Jafarzadeh told IRNA.

According to IRNA, Iran Air is making biweekly direct flights to Tokyo since 1974, which is one the oldest routes of the airline.

Local media reported recently that the Tehran-Tokyo direct flights of Iran Air were on the verge of halt due to different factors which led to heavy loses to Iran's state airline.

The report said the increasing costs of fuel, existence of some restrictions on granting visa to Iranian nationals and limits facing the Iranian air fleet as major reasons behind the decision, adding that Iran Air would have no direct flight to Tokyo as of Oct. 26, 2008.

The report has triggered various reactions by Iranian and Japanese tourists.
