"Getting to Iran by Air" Iran Transportation Tip by JohnniOmani

Iran Transportation: 60 reviews and 52 photos

Irans major international airport is in the western supurbs of Tehran and it is called the Imam Khomeini International airport. It is about 30 + km outside the city and cost around 80,000 IR or $9 US for the taxi into the city. The national carrier is Iran Air ( but smaller airlines included Iran Aseman ( and Mahan Air ( European airlines that go to Iran are Air France, British Airways, KLM, Gulf Air, Lufthansa, Emirates and Kuwait Airways. One of the best and cheapest ways to get to Iran is to make your way to a city in the Air Arabia network ( and fly from there ie Damascus or Istanbul etc. They are dirty cheap and the flight is not that long. A return flight from Dubai should cost about $250 US return tax included. A great bargain.
