Following the signed nuclear deal between P5+1 and Iran, many airlines have quickly seen the doors opening to Iran. The latest airline to open its doors to Iran is the national airline of Ukraine. As of 15 July 2016 the flights between Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, and Iran’s capital, Tehran, will increase from today’s 3 weekly to daily. The operating aircraft will also be upgraded from Embraer 190/Boeing B737 to all B737s.
The Press Secretary of UIA comments this move with the motivation that travel to Asia and the Middle East has gained popularity in both tourism and business.
