TEHRAN, September 29, 2015

Of the 47 existing civilian airports in Iran, 27 will undergo rehabilitation and refurbishment with new terminals, making the Islamic Republic a hot spot for airport development, said the organisers of an upcoming aviation event in Tehran.

The Iran Airports & Aviation Development Forum (IAADF) will be held on February 16 and 17, 2016 at Parsian Azadi Hotel.

The head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization (CAO), Ali Reza Jahangirian, has called for the private sector’s partnership in aviation development projects, underlining his organization’s resolve to attract more investors to develop the country’s aviation industries.

Imam Khomeini International Airport, about 40 km southwest of the Iranian capital, currently has capacity for six million air travellers a year. The airport’s new terminal due to be built in five years will increase the capacity to 20 million passengers a year. New airports are planned in Araz Qom and Ikia Province to the tune of $6 billion.

According to the Civil Aviation Iran will need to acquire 400-500 airliners over the coming decade to renew its aging fleet.

The event will bring together government departments, humanitarian contractors, air carriers, Suppliers to Airports and aviation sectors, logistics firms, freight forwarders and various specialist service suppliers under one roof.

The event will act as a catalyst for new business; it will herald a new beginning for Iran’s challenging economy and will help companies to contribute to the country’s reconstruction.

IAADC offers a platform to showcase solutions to target markets and meet and network with senior-level decision makers in the industry.

The event enjoys support of Ministry of Roads & Urban Development and Chamber of Commerce, Iran civil aviation organization, Iran airports organization, Iran ports and free zone authority. – TradeArabia News Service
