The CAPA Iran Aviation Summit – the first international business event in Iran in any sector of the economy since the lifting of international sanctions – opened in Tehran today with 400 delegates and media in attendance. The Summit was inaugurated by the Minister of Roads & Urban Development, Dr. Abbas Akhoundi, Government of Iran.
The summit brings together senior Iranian government and aviation officials and international guests from leading aviation and travel organisations to explore the prospects for market development in the post-sanctions environment in Iran.
Peter Harbison, CAPA’s Executive Chairman, said, “The aviation market potential in Iran is immense due to the pent up demand after decades of sanctions. We are honoured to have been part of this landmark international event and wish to thank Iran Airports Company and the Iran Civil Aviation Organization for their invaluable support”.
