Iran Air to resume Tehran-Istanbul flights today

Iran’s flag carrier, Iran Air, will resume flights between Tehran and Istanbul today, an official said.

The head of Iran Air Public Relations Office, Hossein Jahani, said on Sunday that the airline will operate its first flight between the two capitals after a four-month hiatus, Mehr News Agency reported.

Iran Air is scheduled to operate two flights per week (Mondays and Fridays) from Tehran to Istanbul and vice versa, the official added.

Flights between Iran and Turkey were suspended about five months ago as the common border was closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In early March, based on coordination between Iran and Turkey, two special flights were conducted from Istanbul to Tehran to bring home Iranian visitors stranded in Turkey.

The two countries are considering the reopening of border crossings and resumption of flights.
