News from IranAir
10 December 2009 - London: IranAir has announced the release of new web-fares for 2010, with the price of an economy return from London Heathrow to Tehran starting at just £318.00, fully inclusive of taxes and service charges. (OFFER NOW CLOSED)
IranAir operates widebodied aircraft, either Airbus 300 or Boeing 747, three times weekly from London Heathrow's Terminal 3 direct to Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport. Onward connections to Isafahan, Mashhad, Tabriz and Shiraz are available online free-of-charge, providing the transit time in Tehran is no more than 24 hours.
All fares are now available through the IranAir London Office website at http://www.iranair.co.uk which has been developed in partnership with Alternative Airlines.
Mr Daryoush Niknam, UK General Manager of IranAir, said: " These fares are not just tactical reductions. We understand that whilst the demand for air travel to Iran continues to grow - in terms of business traffic, as well as leisure and VFR - it is a price sensitive market. Even with our direct flights, we need to establish IranAir as a year-round price competitive airline".
Mr John Pope, Managing Director of Alternative Airlines said: "The local web site is a growing distribution channel for IranAir. We took twice as many online bookings for IranAir in September as we did in August and then doubled the number of bookings again for October. With these competitive new fares now available for 2010, we are expecting online bookings to continue to grow rapidly during December"
Notes: Non Stop return flights from London to Tehran are now available from only £317.70 inclusive of all taxes and service charges. The Booking Period is from now through to 15th December 2010 and all travel must be completed by 15th December 2010. All flights and fares are subject to availability and terms and conditions apply. Iran Air flights to Tehran operate non-stop from Heathrow Terminal 3 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
All flights will be operated by IranAir's Boeing 747 or Airbus A300 aircraft, with a choice of Homa (Business) Class or Economy Class seating, and a full range of competitive fares.
