Qatar Airways to Launch Flights to Historic City of Isfahan in Iran

Qatar Airways is to expand its operations in Iran with the launch of a new twice-weekly direct service to Isfahan International Airport, starting 4 February 2019.

 The airline will also increase services to Shiraz and Tehran from early January 2019.

Isfahan will become the airline’s fourth non-stop gateway to Iran, joining Tehran, Shiraz and Mashad, with the service operating from Doha each Monday and Friday by an Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.

Standing at the foothills of the Zagros mountain range, the beautiful, ancient city of Isfahan is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, famed for its stunning mosques and palaces, magnificent public squares, atmospheric traditional tea houses, tranquil gardens and exquisite historic hand-painted tiling at every turn.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “With its incredible, age-old architecture and bustling traditional bazaars, we are thrilled to announce Isfahan as Qatar Airways’ fourth-service gateway into Iran. Isfahan is a city that is not only steeped in history, but one that has also emerged in recent years to combine its rich cultural heritage with modernity, making it one of Iran’s most fascinating, colourful and lively places for international visitors. We are also delighted to announce that we are increasing our weekly services to both Shiraz and Tehran in January. These latest launches are further evidence of Qatar Airways’ commitment to Iran, as well as the expansion of our network in this thriving market to provide greater connectivity to both business and leisure passengers alike.”
