Iran Expanding Flight Routes

Iran Air is preparing to restart flights to Japan following last month’s international deal to end sanctions imposed over Iran’s nuclear program.
The carrier will initially restart flights connecting Tokyo’s Narita airport with Tehran, with a stop in Beijing, once a week.
The earliest that Iran Air is likely to resume service is next year after ending flights in 2012, Bloomberg reported citing sources who wished not to be named.
Iran and Japan are also discussing allowing direct flights between the countries for multiple airlines and will come to an agreement on this soon. Japan Airlines Company stopped direct flights to Tehran in 1980 following the Islamic Revolution the previous year.
Meanwhile, Russia and Iran airlines have established a bilateral agreement designating an unlimited number of carriers on specified routes.
Based on the agreement, the airlines will be able to operate a maximum of 28 frequencies per week with any aircraft type, Washington-based magazine Air Transport World reported.
The memorandum of understanding was adjusted by the countries in September 2015 and recently disclosed by Russian authorities.
The two countries have agreed that Tehran, Isfahan, Mashhad and Rasht will be points of destinations for scheduled services in Iran; three more points will be specified later.
Points of destinations in Russia will be Moscow, St. Petersburg, Astrakhan, Kazan, Ufa and Sochi; one more destination will be added later.
Iran’s Mahan Air started weekly Tehran-Moscow Vnukovo Airbus A310 service on Jan. 21 and will add a second weekly frequency on Feb. 29.
European airlines are also readying to restart flights to Iran, with British Airways saying it will resume service to Tehran in July.
