Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKIA) currently has a passenger capacity of around five million per year. However, in the fiscal 2017-18, the airport hosted over nine million passengers, according to the Financial Tribune.

Operated by Iran Airports Company, IKIA is located 30 kilometers southwest of Iran's capital city Tehran.

IKIA has the biggest share of international flights operated in Iran and Mehrabad the biggest in terms of domestic ones.

The Salam Terminal is supposed to host overnight domestic flights that can’t land in Mehrabad Airport due to its proximity to residential areas.
