Persian Gulf Arabs to Increase Capacity to Tehran

Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways have both plans to increase the capacity from Doha, respectively Abu Dhabi to Tehran.

Qatar Airways has proposed an all-A330 service to Tehran as of 6 March 2016 on all of the 18 weekly rotations. This route is today mostly operated by A320, and sometimes A330/B777.

Etihad Airways is increasing its flights to the Iranian capital from 7 to 10 weekly, starting 5 February 2016, and later on to two daily on 1 March 2016. All flights are scheduled to be operated by A320.
