British Airways says it will end its direct flights to Iran’s capital in September as “the operation is currently not commercially viable.”

The decision announced Thursday comes after President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and began restoring U.S. sanctions.

British Airways says its last flight to Tehran will be Sept. 22, with the return on Sept. 23.

British Airways resumed direct flights to Tehran in September 2016. Service had been suspended in October 2012 as relations deteriorated between Britain and Iran.

Air France and KLM will also cancel all flights to Tehran. Last Air France flight on Sept. 18, last KLM flight on Sept 23.
