The Director of Khorramabad’s airport told that the number of flights to Mashhad will double, and that flights to Qeshm may be launched.
In negotiations with Taban Air, the airport have agreed to double the capacity to Mashhad by using the MD83 aircraft, instead of the smaller RJ85. The number of seats wil thereby increase from around 80 to 160. Taban Air’s flights from Khorramabad to Mashhad are operated twice weekly on Saturday and Tuesday mornings. This change will occur in the beginning of the new Iranian year.
The Airport Director also noted that this increased capacity is aimed at the increased travelling period during the Iranian New Year, also known as Nouroz. Nouroz is Iran’s by far busiest travel period, and he hoped that the passengers will appreciate this effort.
Besides the increase of flights to Mashhad, and a new route to Iraq, Khorramabad has flights to Qeshm on its wishlist
