With this new connection the Lufthansa Group is expanding its daily offer with a Boeing B747-400 from Frankfurt. Moreover, Austrian Airlines is flying up to twice a day from Vienna with an Airbus A320.
“Due to increasing business relations, we are expecting a significantly higher demand in the future. Iran has also gained greater significance with culture tourists,” says Thomas Winkelmann, CEO of Lufthansa’s Munich hub.
The connection between Munich and Teheran had already been offered from spring 2004 to summer 2006.
The Iranian capital is situated at an altitude of around 1,100 metres above sea-level and boasts a wealth of attractions including three ski resorts. The metropolis has more than 10 million inhabitants. Half of the Iranian industries are located in Teheran, especially the oil and gas industries. Other economic sectors are the textile, agriculture and building materials industries.
