British Airways’ Head of Sales, Asia Pacific and the Middle East Robert Williams said the new office aimed at increasing customers’ convenience, providing them with more options and improving quality of the services to them.

‘British Airways has a long history of flying to Iran. Since the relaunch of our operations a year ago, we are delighted to be able to further serve our customers with the opening of the new ticketing office,’ he said.
