The US pressures on airplane manufacturing companies against Iran has affected the ticket prices on domestic flights.
Iran Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) seeks to expand its air fleet and creates traveling opportunities to all parts of the country and reduces the ticket rates. In this regard two new domestic airlines are expected to be launched in the upcoming month.
Following the sanctions against Iran, major airplane manufacturers were prevented to sell plane or plane parts to Iran.
