Mehrabad's Terminal 1 on Nat'l Heritage List

Mehrabad Airport's Terminal 1 was inscribed on the National Heritage List on Jan. 31, highlighting its historical, cultural and architectural significance.
In a ceremony held at the terminal, Zahra Ahmadipour, the head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, said, "It is our duty to preserve and protect our cultural heritage," ISNA reported.
Opened in 1938, Mehrabad served as Iran's main international and domestic airport until 2004, when international flights were moved to the Imam Khomeini International Airport 30 km south of Tehran.
Since 2007, Mehrabad only serves domestic flights and pilgrimage flights to Saudi Arabia and it is the busiest airport in the country. Terminal 1 is only used for the departures of Zagros Airlines and Kish Air. 
Mehrabad Airport's Terminal 1 is one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in Iran. 
The airport's main terminal, although altered through the years, has retained many original design motifs and forms created in the early 1950s when it was established. 
Art Deco was the predominant decorative art style of the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes and strong colors, and used most notably in household objects and in architecture.
