The state-owned Iranian airline Iran Air plans to launch air services on the route Bojnurd (Iran) — Ashgabat (Turkmenistan). This was stated by the Governor-General of North Khorasan province, Mohammad-Ali Shojai, according to the Tehran Times.
According to him, the regular flight is planned to be launched on the basis of the Memorandum of understanding signed between Turkmenistan and Iran in 2019. It is noted that flights will help the development of tourism in the region.
North Khorasan is a province located in North-Eastern Iran and has a long border with Turkmenistan. Tourism in Bojnurd is gaining momentum, although, as a rule, tourists are passing through this area, traveling along the route Mashhad-Gorgan. Currently, there are about 150 eco-houses in the province that serve nature lovers, vacationers and tourists.
