Two major development projects at Imam Khomeini International Airport, namely the construction of Salam and Iranshahr terminals, will considerably expand the major Iranian airport’s capacity.
IKIA presently has a passenger capacity of around five million per year. However, the airport hosted over nine million passengers in the last fiscal year (March 2017-18). 
In an exclusive interview with Financial Tribune, Shahram Adamnejad, managing director of Imam Khomeini Airport City Company, said the airport’s passenger capacity will reach 120 million per year upon the completion of the two terminals.
The project to develop the area surrounding IKIA to create an airport city has been on the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s agenda for the past couple of years.
