The country’s aviation infrastructure is in significant need of investment. Airports in Iran are managed by Iranian Airports Company. There are 54 airports around the country, including eight international airports. The most significant of these include Imam Khomeini International and Mehrabad International, both in Tehran, and the international airports serving other major cities such as Mashhad, Isfahan, Tabriz and Shiraz as well as the Gulf island of Kish.
Investment is planned at a number of the country’s airports, not least to provide for the expected surge in visitors as Iran returns to the international mainstream.
