Mahan Air looking to add Australian flights
Mahan Air will next month open talks with authorities in Australia over the proposed launch of flights, reports ch-aviation.
A statement issued by the Iranian Embassy in Canberra said the talks would occur in the wake of a recently concluded bilateral air services agreement. Canberra is expected to ratify the agreement at the end of this month thus paving the way for Mahan Air's talks, said Iranian Ambassador to Australia, Abdolhossein Vahaji.
While exact details on the rights contained in the BASA are scant, Vahaji said it allows for direct flights between Sydney Kingsford Smith, Brisbane Int'l, Melbourne Tullamarine, and Perth Int'l and the Iranian cities of Tehran, Mashad, Shiraz and Isfahan Int'l.
