Austrian Airlines reopens flights to Iran
Flights to Tehran from Austrian Airlines have began again after a year’s interruption of the service following disputes over refuelling in Iran and economic sanctions.
The airline will begin to fly again to the Iranian capital on 11th March, providing five weekly flights.
The announcements comes as Europe and the US begin to lift sanctions on the country following discussions with Iran about pausing it’s nuclear programme.
The new flight additions will be a particular relief for European business travellers looking to visit Iran as there is currently a shortage of direct flights there from Europe.
One carrier departs Vienna at 20:10 and arriving a Tehran at the 03:00 the following morning. Return services leave Tehran at 03:55, arriving into Vienna at 06:00. Customers can book flights now on the Austrian Airline website.
