Direct Tehran-Barcelona Flight Starts Today

Mahan Air’s direct Tehran-Barcelona flight begins on Thursday following a ceremony attended by officials from the two countries, Mahan Air’s marketing manager and head of Europe Operations said.

“The direct flights from Tehran to Barcelona and vice versa will reduce traveling time from 12-15 hours to only six hours,” Hossein Hosseini was also quoted as saying by IRNA.

In a meeting held in Tehran in February with the head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, Zahra Ahmadipour, Spain’s Ambassador to Iran Eduardo Lopez Busquets said: “We are also trying to launch direct flights to Madrid in the near future.”  

“Last year (2016), 20,000 Iranians travelled to Spain. Establishing direct flights will considerably increase the exchange of tourists from both countries,” Busquets added.

Mahan, which started operations in 1992 as the first private carrier in Iran, has now grown to own the largest fleet among all Iranian carriers.
