Iran airline launches new flights11 February 2007
Iran’s national airline will begin direct flights to Venezuela next month in another sign of the two nations’ increasingly close ties.
Iran Air will operate a weekly, commercial flight linking Tehran and Caracas in March, the Venezuelan government said in a statement.
Flights leaving Tehran will stop in Syria’s capital of Damascus on their way to Caracas, it said.
Iran Air opened a new office at the headquarters of Venezuela’s state airline Conviasa in Caracas on Friday, and Convias will soon open a commercial office in Iran, the statement said.
