On 11 June, Simply Flying and others reported that a Boeing 747 freighter of Emtrasur airline had been detained at Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) in Buenos Aires. It had been there since 6 June, and it and the crew have been grounded, unable to fly back to Venezuela. Emtrasur is a cargo airline, a branch of Venezuela’s State airline, Conviasa. It is said to be the first of possibly 3 Boeing 747 that Emtrasur was to acquire from Iranian airline Mahan Air. On arriving in Argentina, authorities reviewed the cargo without finding anything suspicious. Nonetheless, a local newspaper reported that some of the Iranian crew members were suspected to be connected with the Quds Force.
