The Iranian flag carrier’s second regional flight with ATR 72-600 aircraft was operated on Thursday, leaving Tabriz International Airport in East Azarbaijan Province for Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.

The announcement was made by the manager of Iran Air’s Public Relations Department, Massoumeh Asgharzadeh.

The establishment of the new flight, according to the official, is in line with the flag carrier’s plans to establish regional flights with ATR 72-600 aircraft from Iran’s border provinces to neighboring countries.

“From now on, Iran Air’s regional flights headed to Azerbaijan will be carried out weekly on Mondays and Thursdays,” she added.
