Iran Aviation Organization has granted Mahan Air the license for establishing new flights from Shiraz to Dubai, said a report citing director general of Fars Province Airports.

Reza Badiei-Fard told IRNA on Friday that Mahan Air has been given necessary licenses to operate three two-way flights each week between the two cities.

The announcement follows the latest flight from Shiraz Ayatollah Dastgheib International Airport to Georgia (Tbilisi), which started recently.

Badiei-Fard also said that there may have been discussions for establishing a cargo air link from Shiraz to Persian Gulf littoral states, however ti can only be verified once the license has been issued for that by Iran Aviation Organization, the report said.

When asked about resumption of Shiraz-Muscat flights by Kish Air, the official said no license has so far been issued for that.
