How to travel to Iran?
Iran is well deserved from its neighbour countries and prices are generally cheap. The most important hubs of the region are connected to Tehran. You’ll easily find plenty flights between Istanbul-Tehran and Dubai-Tehran (or Sharjah-Tehran). Moreover, with the progressive lift of the international sanctions, like AirFrance, European companies are re-operating their flights with Tehran. Iran Air flies to many capitals in the world, but the Iranian bank network is not yet connected to the international one. You’ll not be able to book a flight online unless you have an Iranian credit card. For this reason, foreigners usually fly on foreign companies.
