Mahan Air restarted services to the Russian capital on 21 January, launching flights to Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) from its international hub at Tehran Imam Khomeini (IKA). The 2,481-kilometre sector, which was originally planned to start a week earlier on 14 January, will be operated on a four times weekly basis with the airline’s A310 fleet. Mahan Air faces no direct competition, however Iran Air flies weekly and Aeroflot four times weekly between the two capitals, with both utilising Moscow Sheremetyevo.
