The number of flights to Isfahan will increase to three from April 1. Three weekly flights to and from Sharjah to Mashhad are also scheduled to be added from the same date.

The flights will be in line with the components of the MoU, signed in 2006, to expand bilateral ties between Iran and Tunisia.
