Intrepid travellers are expected to make Iran the new ‘must-see’ destination thanks to the start of direct flights to Tehran from Heathrow by British Airways.

The new six times a week service follows the recent relaxation of sanctions, which opens up exciting new prospects for Iran as a tourist destination thanks to its rich heritage and culture, unique architecture, and world-class food and delicacies. As well as giving even more choice and flexibility between London and the Middle East, especially for families looking to visit relatives, Tehran is also a great emerging market with real opportunities for businesses to grow commercial links.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Head of Network and Fleet, said: “British Airways has a long history of flying to Iran so we are very excited to be launching our new six times a week service, direct from Heathrow to Tehran.

“Iran is a fascinating country, full of amazing and surprising places for tourists to visit and discover its sophisticated and ancient culture.

“The recent lifting of sanctions has also effectively allowed Iran to reopen for business and paved the way for commerce to reconnect with Iran’s economy, which is the second largest in Middle East and North Africa, with a diverse range of businesses and industries.”

The service from Heathrow Terminal 5 will be operated by a four-class Boeing 777 with return fares starting from £535 for customers flying in World Traveller, £938 for those flying in World Traveller Plus, £2198 for those travelling in Club World and £3830 for those in First.
