Plane ticket prices have seen an average decline of 13% starting Nov. 22, compared with June rates, as per the directive issued by the High Council of Iran’s National Airlines.
“The amount of decline in ticket prices for different flight routes differs, but they range from 2% to 33%. Yet, prices will still be floated, depending on factors that impact air transportation expenses. Prices are not going to be fixed,” Secretary-General of Airline Companies Association Maqsoud Asadi-Samani was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
In summer, Iranian airline companies increased ticket prices by 40%, citing social distancing measures and other Covid-19 protocols for losses to their business.
