Tehran, Iran, Feb.16


Iran is to inaugurate a new terminal at the Imam Khomeini International Airport in the new Iranian year (starts on March 21,2019).

The Minister of Road Development and Urban Planning Mohammad Eslami has visited the early testing of Salam Terminal at the Imam Khomeini airport on Saturday while inaugurating the second test for the Iran Air company, Trend reports citing Fars News Agency.

"Salam Terminal has been tested and it would be inaugurated in the upcoming 40 days,” he said.
The official noted that Salam Terminal has the capacity of 5 million passengers per year that would operate for experiment in the spring.

"The progress in the terminal has been appropriate and most of the equipment have been installed, while part of working staff have been deployed to the area. The terminal will be inaugurated after the final test,” he added.

He noted that the project will be inaugurated completely once all the facilities, including parking areas are ready.

Iran plans to expand the Imam Khomeini Airport to boost its aviation service and economy. It is expected to construct Iranshahr terminal in the future, a mega terminal that would have annual capacity of 25 million passengers, with eventual expansion to 100 million.
