Looking more like a ribbon-untying than a ribbon-cutting, the Mahan Air captain flying the inaugural service from Mashhad to Delhi did the honours in the Indian capital. The A300-600-operated route will be flown weekly.
- Mahan Air began its second service into India’s capital city of Delhi (DEL) on 4 November, adding to its existing thrice-weekly route from Tehran, when it launched services from Iran’s second most-populous city of Mashhad (MHD). Located in the north-east of the county, the 1,846-kilometre sector leaves the Iranian city on a weekly basis (Fridays), with the route flown by the carrier’s A300-600 fleet. No other airline currently offers the same city pair.
