Following the recent relaxation of sanctions on Iran, British Airways launched a new six times a week service to Tehran on September 1.
Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Head of network and fleet, said: “British Airways has a long history of flying to Iran so we are very excited to be launching our new six times a week service, direct from Heathrow to Tehran.
“Iran is a fascinating country, full of amazing and surprising places for tourists to visit and discover its sophisticated and ancient culture.
“The recent lifting of sanctions has also effectively allowed Iran to re-open for business and paved the way for commerce to re-connect with Iran’s economy, which is the second largest in Middle East and North Africa, with a diverse range of businesses and industries.”
The service from Heathrow Terminal 5 is operated by four-class Boeing 777s with return fares starting from £535 for customers flying in World Traveller, £938 for those flying in World Traveller Plus, £2,198 for those travelling in Club World and £3,830 for those in First.
