The British-Iranian dual national received her passport on Tuesday flew home to husband Richard and daughter Gabrielle on Wednesday.
Her MP, Tulip Siddiq, shared a picture of her on the plane, saying: “Nazanin is now in the air flying away from 6 years of hell in Iran.
“My heart goes out to Gabriella and Richard, as her long journey back home to them gets closer by the minute.
