The passengers were not injured but had to disembark onto the runway on mobile stairs. The aircraft was not damaged and was towed back onto the runway.
The aircraft continued with its next scheduled flight IR-722 to Ljubljana, Slovenia and then to Tehran at 5:45 PM.
The Iran Air flight has to make the stop in Slovenia because the German airport does not refuel Iranian aircraft in accordance with EU sanctions against Iran.
