Dubai’s trade with Iran will get a major boost when Emirates begins services to Iran’s second city, Mashhad, next week. The airline, which will commence passenger flight to the city next Tuesday, estimates that it can fly nearly 8,000 tonnes of freight goods to Mashhad yearly, in addition to the 17,500 tonnes it already sends to Tehran via its SkyCargo freight division. “We anticipate that trade between the UAE and Iran will further flourish as a result of the launch of this new, direct five times weekly service,” said Khalid Al Hinai, Emirates Vice President for commercial cargo in the Middle East and Iran.
