Iran Air is doubling its flights on the Dubai-Tehran route due to high demand.
The airline has introduced two flights a day between Tehran and Dubai.
The increased flight schedule is expected to continue through the summer, said Naser Hashemian, area manager, Iran Air.
An airline spokesperson said the new services would cater to the heavy demand - especially for cargo. The airline has had almost an 18 per cent increase in cargo on last year, he said.
The airline is confident that if there is enough demand for two flights a day during the winter then flights should be even busier during the peak summer season.
Return fares for travel between Tehran and Dubai will remain at Dh595 ($162) for now, but may increase after Ramadan, said the spokesperson. The spokesperson added that the airline is negotiating with aircraft manufacturers to increase its fleet size.
The airline was forced to drop plans to buy four Airbus jets because the US blocked Britain's Rolls-Royce from supplying the engines, said Davoud Keshavarzian, Iran Air chief.
