Mehrabad is an important military base for both regular Air Force and the Pasdaran, unlikely it will convert to a park!

Beside there is a growth in domestic flights in Iran so Tehran will need two airports to accomodate that.

As for IKIA vs Dubai International well I think no contest, even before the current expansion Dubai wins hands down.

^^What is so wrong with you people!! In the GCC nobody gets pissed when hearing persian gulf, I don't know why do you guys care what others call in other countries. Don't you know that different places have different names in other countries, including the persian gulf. What do you expect from 7 arab countries that all are located on that spot to be calling it?? Persian???

they dont get pissed because it is the persian gulf thats the name of it! The arabian glf is fake it doesnt exist. And yes we do expect you to call it the persian gulf because it just is the persian gulf it doesnt have a nother name, just except it.

The control tower is probably from the old design made in the 70s and they only got the new design for the terminal. At least they didnt make the whole terminal according to the old design.

^^ true...although I guess the controll tower would've looked much better if only it had a sole exterior of glass.

So its still not fully operational???

I really dont want to use it... its way too far out of Tehran for my liking... Itl cost a bomb for the taxi to get to my appt in Tehran from IKIA :runaway:

I like this airport. Although they could have given the control tower a better design.
So, when is this airport taking over Mehrabad's flights? Is it going to be months or maybe years?
