Iran's air routes ready to receive more foreign flights

Source: ISNA

Iranian air space is ready to receive more foreign flights, said Managing Director of Aviation Operation Control Department of Iranian Civil Aviation Organization Saeed Akbari said. "Flights passing across Iranian air space have doubled," Akbari said, adding the country is set for attracting more flights across its air space.

"Malaysian plane crash in Ukrainian sky has blocked the country's air space on other flights. Moreover, limitations on Iraqi sky have caused foreign airliners to find secure paths for their planes, so demands for flying across the Islamic Republic of Iran's air space have risen unprecedentedly."

International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has called for flights across Iranian sky, and Iranian Civil Aviation Organization has expressed its readiness as well, he said.

Akbari also continued that new air routes have been added to Iranian air routes and it has increased the number of flights to 880 from 480 per day.

The official added that Iran's unique position in terms of aerospace, natural geography, navigation equipment, large soil and flights experts have raised demands for using the country's air space.
