Kish Air Introduces New International and Domestic Routes

Kish Air has reportedly planned to launch and resume a number of routes, both from the hub in Kish Island as well as other key cities in Iran.

According to the Ministry of Roads and Urban Developments, Kish Air has resumed the seasonal services from Kish Island, respectively Shiraz, to the Omani capital Muscat. The services were resumed simultaneously with the launch of a new Chabahar – Muscat route on the 8th of July 2016. All the three routes will be served once a week on Fridays by the airline’s MD80 aircraft.

On the 16th of July 2016, Kish Air is set to launch another new route, however this time domestically, when Kish Island will be connected to Hamedan and Mashhad in a two-leg route Kish Island – Hamedan – Mashhad.

On the sidelines, Kish Air is negotiating with Arak Airport to launch a new route to Kish Island. The airport is currently negotiating with several airlines and has not excluded any airline yet, but Kish Air is said to be the obvious choice according the airport. Arak Airport is currently improving its sole terminal in order to have capacity to handle 50% more than present and expects the amount of flights to shortly surge.
