Iran: 6% rise in airport traffic

Financial Tribune – Iran Airports Company registered 27,487 takeoffs and landings during the seventh month of the current Iranian year (Sept. 23-Oct. 22), which shows a 6% increase compared with the similar month of last year.

Hamidreza Seyyedi, an IAC official, also said more than 3.3 million passengers and 25,211 tons of cargos were transported during the month under review, indicating a 12% and 8% rise in passenger and cargo transport respectively year-on-year, Fars News Agency reported.

The report does not include data on Imam Khomeini International Airport, as the airport failed to submit data to IAC this month and in the previous one due to a change in management.

A comprehensive report, including data from IKIA airport, is expected to follow soon.
