Iran Air delays Belgrade launch

NEWS FLASH


Iran Air will delay the introduction of flights between Tehran and Belgrade which were due to commence tomorrow. This is despite being granted a permit by the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate. Iran Air previously announced it would launch flights to Belgrade on January 13 and run the service twice per week, each Tuesday and Saturday. However, it is not uncommon for Iranian-based carriers to fail to execute announced plans and new routes. Earlier this week, the Head of the Public Relations Department of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organisation, Reza Ja’farzadeh, said services between the two countries would launch "very soon", adding that Iran Air, Qeshm Air and Air Serbia will run scheduled and charter flights between the two nations. Qeshm Air is due to commence a two-weekly service from Tehran to Belgrade from February 1. In addition, Mahan Air will operate a one-off charter between the Iranian and Serbian capitals on March 20 with its Airbus A310 aircraft. Iran Air's flights are likely to commence later this month, although the airline is yet to confirm a date. The scheduling for this service can be found here.

    2. Нема платног промета између Србије и Ирана тако да не постоји могућност да се продају карте путем нета. Ово су мање више чартери који превозе иранске туристе у Србију.

    1. Only one of 10 countries in the world that does not require visas for Iranians. They are delayed because of bureocracy not low demand.
