Public transit? 2) I've always enjoyed those Iranian people I know, but I'm not sure if the bulk of our readers (Mostly from the USA and Canada) would receive the same welcome from the...

Air France returns to Tehran in April

The EU is already Iran's fourth-biggest economic partner, and trade is expected to grow.

Iran is also buying some turboprops, from ATR, which is jointly owned by Airbus and an Italian company. The deal includes 20 firm orders and 20 optionals, but didn't specify the cost, or the possible mix of ATR42 (45-seat) and ATR72 (70-seat) models.
