Payam Int'l Airport to Resume Passenger Flights

Payam International Airport’s passenger flights are scheduled to resume in the second half of the current Iranian month (June 5-20), announced the airport’s managing director.
According to Nader Sanagou-Motlaq, the airport will operate flights to Ahvaz, Kish and Mashhad.
The flights had been previously stopped due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, IRNA reported.
Payam Airport was established in 1997 as a cargo-only airport. The increasing population of Alborz, the province where it is located, prompted authorities to devise plans to develop a passenger terminal for the airport.
Payam Special Economic Zone's fourth development phase was launched last month on an area of 165 hectares. 
According to Managing Director of the economic zone, Nader Sanagou-Motlaq, this is its biggest development phase as the three previous development phases covered an area of 114 hectares.
The new phase will see the development of the zone's information and communications technologies’ sector.
Payam is the closest special economic zone to Iran’s capital city Tehran, having attracted a multitude of companies with significant investments in a wide range of areas, including ICT, pharmaceuticals, health, oil and gas.
Payam International Airport, located at the heart of the zone, is owned by Iran’s Information and Communications Technologies Ministry.
