Hi all,

I went to the beautiful and my most favorite city in Iran Shiraz for a quick visit and got some pictures and am sharing them here with you. I could not take pictures of the main terminal as I was in a hurry.

As you may know, Tehran's Mehrabad Airport was the one used for both Int'l flights and domestic ones operating from separate terminals but since the Int'l airport moved to another location (IKA) the former Int'l terminal is used for all Iran Air flights but as I was traveling with Aseman I had to go through the all time domestic terminal.

Enjoy  

Dec. 78th, 2012
THR-SYZ
Departure Time: 9:05
Iran Aseman Airlines- Fokker 100
Duration: 1 hour

These days all int'l tickets in Iran are electronic- most of domestic ones are electronic too but I got lucky and they issued me a paper ticket for Aseman but for Iran Air it was an electronic one, which is the normal print out that you take to the airport with you.

RE: Tehran- Shiraz- Tehran- Iran Aseman & Iran Air

Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:26 am

Thanks Omid jan for the great photos, Lucky you traveling to Iran and could grab picture of Aseman and THR.

However you could have improved your trip by adding a little more detail about each photo and the flight it self or maybe capturing some pictures from Shiraz the city as well.
As far as I see this report is more pictures than actually being a report even though it was good seeing scenery of THR and Aseman F100s brought back memories when I left Iran in 2005  

PS, as you mentioned THR having couple of air bridges i remember back in 2003 or 04 I went to Dubai on an EK A332 and we had to go through the jetways that was just cool being at THR and the only airport in Iran (i thigk) having those jetways  

Thanks Again.
Iran Air, we take you there, we take you back!

Fantastic trip report. Great insight into an airline we rarely get much information about. And of a country.

The entire crew looks very smart in those uniforms.

Some of your pictures remind me of the Andes crossing when flying SCL-MDZ in the Austral winter.

Bon Voyage, and thank you so much!!!

Fascinating. Thanks for the great report.

The women have a separate entrance?

Also there seems to be a picture in the front of the cabin or maybe I am mistaken?

Iran is certainly a country I would like to visit one day.

Great report. I did that route on an IR B727 many years ago and loved it. Shiraz is such a nice place too.

Thanks for the report and I love the way IR still brand their cups etc...
