Teheran to have a new airport in February

December 10, Teheran (dpa) - Teheran will have a new international airport in February next year, the daily Abrar reported Sunday.

Iran's ministry of road and transportation announced that the International Imam Khomeini Airport, named after the late revolutionary leader, will be ready in February 2001 after more than 20 years and inaugurated by Iranian pilgrims going to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The new airport is located 30 kilometres south of the capital on the Teheran-Qom highway taking passengers between 30 minutes to one hour - depending on the traffic - to reach north Teheran.

The new airport, equipped with advanced aviation technology at a cost of almost one billion dollars, will take over all domestic and international flights from the Mehrabad airport and initially be able to handle 12 million passengers and 200,000 tons of cargo a year.
