Over 100 VIP guests including high ranking officials from the Armenian Civil Aviation, Yerevan Airport and travel trade professionals were on hand to celebrate the opening of Mahan Air’s new route between Tehran and Yerevan. The first inbound flight operated with a 100% load factor.
- Mahan Air has started thrice-weekly flights between Tehran (IKA) and Yerevan (EVN) on 1 June. Operated by the airline’s 185-seat A310s, the 793-kilometre sector will see Mahan Air face competition from incumbent Iran Aseman Airlines, with its four times weekly operation. “We strongly believe that the convenience of our non-stop flights from Tehran together with the connectivity options to the Middle East and Far East destinations will further facilitate a great boost for business and leisure visitors between our two countries of Iran and Armenia,” said Hossein Hosseini, Director of Marketing and Route Development at Mahan Air.
