Booking a direct flight to Tehran may not be as easy as it sounds. Thanks to numerous online booking websites, buying a flight ticket has never been as easy, yet if a customer is looking to book a direct flight to Tehran surprisingly they won’t find anything online.
Iran Air is the flag carrier of Iran and operates three weekly direct flights from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 to Tehran Imam Khomeini Airport and vice versa. Flight days are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays every week. Departure flight time from London is usually at 16:55 and arrival to Tehran is at 02:30 am next day. Iran Air flight leaves Tehran at 11:05 and arrives in London, Heathrow by 14:10. Flight duration is approximately 6 hours and all the mentioned times are local. There might be a slight variation on flight times during different seasons.
So if there is no way to book a direct flight online, then how should a customer book a ticket to Tehran?
At the moment they can only book Iran Air Tickets through a travel agent, and only few travel agents provide this service.
