Latest data released by the Iran Airports Company (IAC) show that international air traffic in Iran is beginning to experience growth after the coronavirus outbreak brought a significant decline in the number of international takeoffs and landings in the country.

According to the IAC, a total of 215 takeoffs and landings were registered during the fourth month of the current Iranian year (June 21–July 21) indicating a 100% growth in international flights compared with the preceding month.

More than 8,600 passengers and 1,360 tons of cargos were also transported during the month registering 89% and 100% increase respectively compared with the preceding month.

The number of international takeoffs and landings, however, shows a 91% decrease YoY which is mostly due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and suspension of international flights to and from Iran.

The handling of passengers and cargo also indicates a 97% and %78 fall respectively YoY.

More airlines are resuming flights to Iranian cities. Turkish Airlines announced on Monday that it will resume flights to Iran on 1 September. Dubai-based Emirates airlines also resumed flights to Tehran in mid-July after a five-month break.
