Iranian Deputy Roads and Urban Development Minister Ali Mohammad Nourian announced on Wednesday that some US airlines are willing to run direct flight line between the two countries.
Some Iranian, American and Canadian airlines are ready to establish Iran-US direct flight line, he said, adding, "Three Iranian airlines and some American and Canadian airlines are ready to establish direct flight in the airway."
"Now, talks have a positive atmosphere and Americans have shown signals suggesting they are interested in establishing the flight," he said, referring to the process of talks between Iran and G5+1.
He further added Iran-US direct flight line would be run by the end of this year if fruitful results are yielded in the talks, and noted the project would be in the form of charter flight at the beginning.
He added Boeing 747 and Airbus A340 planes can be used for the project.
