Since 4 July, Lufthansa flies from Munich to Tehran, Iran



Lufthansa is flying nonstop once again from Munich to Teheran. Starting 4th July, 2016, the connection under flight number LH 602 will begin three times a week at 22.10 pm, arriving at the Iranian capital at 5.20 am. The Airbus A330-300 offers Lufthansa passengers the latest cabin facilities including Premium Economy with 21 seats. With this new connection the Lufthansa Group is expanding its daily offer with a Boeing B747-400 from Frankfurt. Moreover, Austrian Airlines is flying up to twice a day from Vienna with an Airbus A320. “Due to increasing business relations, we are expecting a significantly higher demand in the future. Iran has also gained greater significance with culture tourists,“ says Thomas Winkelmann, CEO of Lufthansa’s Munich hub. The connection between Munich and Teheran had already been offered from spring 2004 to summer 2006.

The Iranian capital is situated at an altitude of around 1,100 metres above sea-level and boasts a wealth of attractions including three ski resorts. The metropolis has more than 10 million inhabitants. Half of the Iranian industries are located in Teheran, especially the oil and gas industries. Other economic sectors are the textile, agriculture and building materials industries.

A return flight to Teheran can be booked from as little as 429 euros. Further information and the possibility of booking Lufthansa flights are available online at or via the Lufthansa Service Center under telephone number (069) 86 799 799 (fixed net rate).
