TEHRAN- A member of board of directors of Tehran Imam Khomeini Airport City Company announced that his company is holding talks with Indian, South Korean and Canadian national airlines to inaugurate their direct fights to Tehran, Tasnim news agency reported on Sunday.

Kourosh Fattahi said that from the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (started March 20), foreign national airlines including British Airways, Air France and Thai Airways have launched direct flights to Tehran and Imam Khomeini Airport is conducting negotiations with Air India, Korean Air, and Air Canada about commencing direct flights to the Iranian capital.
The lifting of sanctions against Iran in January has turned Tehran into a new economic frontier and an emerging tourism market, thus catching the attention of international airlines.
