Oman Air was welcomed to Tehran with a cake, as the airline’s new E-175 aircraft arrived in the Iranian capital. The Omani delegation, which included Oman’s ambassador to Iran and Iran’s ambassador to Oman, was received by a team consisting of Hamid Reza Pahlevani, Iran’s Head of Civil Aviation, and Morteza Dehghan, Director General of Imam Khomeini International Airport.
- Oman Air added Iran to its network on 1 September when the airline connected its Muscat (MCT) hub with Iran’s capital Tehran (IKA). Flights are operated daily with new E-175 aircraft configured with 71 seats. Oman Air’s CEO Wayne Pearce commented: “We are extremely pleased to be launching our new service between Muscat and Tehran and to be offering customers the opportunity to travel aboard our outstanding Embraer 175 regional jets. Tehran offers visitors the opportunity to gain insights into not only Iran’s unique culture, but also its rich and ancient history. Furthermore, Tehran is a major business hub and we anticipate strong demand from both business and leisure passengers.”
