Mahan Air - One of Iran's Favourite Airlines
Iran's Mahan Air is a private airline based out of Tehran. It currently operates out of both Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport and Mehrabad International Airport and provides services to local and international destinations across three continents.
Established in 1991, the company was the first private airline in Iran and launched its inaugural flight in 1993 between Tehran and Kerman. After 3 years, the airline had already transported over a million passengers, expanded to more local routes and added further international destinations to it's service, most recently adding Moscow, Copenhagen and Paris to its long-haul routes in 2016.
