A Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA aircraft stranded in Iran for more than two months because of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic has finally flown home.

The plane, a Boeing 737 Max aircraft, landed at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport early on Saturday, the company said in a statement. It’s “a big relief” to get the plane home again, spokeswoman Astrid Mannion-Gibson said in the statement.
