How New Airplanes Impact Iran’s Commercial Flights Market

Web and Social Media

Since the lifting of anti-Iran sanctions on January 2016, as part of the deal it signed with six powers, 11 new planes have joined Iran Air’s fleet. 
The impact of the long-awaited move was not merely limited to the flag carrier's performance, as it affected the whole commercial flights sector. 
As per data released by Iranian Airport Company, Iranian airports transported 61.5 million passengersduring the previous fiscal year (ended March 20, 2018), marking a 7% growth compared with the same period of last year. 
Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport was the busiest domestic airport during the period with 17.45 million passengers, followed by Mashhad International Airport (10.5 million) and Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport (8.97 million). 
Currently, 54 airports are operating in the country, many of which are either small-scale or located in less developed areas. This makes them infeasible for a majority of domestic carriers.
