Imam Khomeini International Airport (IATA: IKIA) (Farsi: فرودگاه بین‌المللی امام خمینی) is located in Tehran, Iran. The airport is located about 30 kilometers south of the city. It was designed to replace Mehrabad International Airport, which is in the west of the city, now inside the city boundaries.

Upon your arrival at the IKIA you are able to take taxis to different part of Tehran.

There are two taxi agencies work there which are as follow:

1- TBT Taxi Co. which charge 450 Tomans per Kilometer

TBT [Unfortunately the website in Farsi]

2- Sirosafar Taxi Co. which charge flat rate of 12,000 Tomans to anywhere in Tehran including one suitcase.
Please be sure that before you take the taxi, check the price with the driver. If there are any problems, you could report to the Sirosafar Taxi Co's supervisor.

Airport Seir-o-Safar [the English version is under construction, but the Arabic version is available)

Usually it takes 30 to 40 minutes to reach to the center of Tehran.

Have a nice trip.

It took them over 30 years to get Imam Khomeini airport build.
I wonder how long it will take them to translate the taxi website into english.

So Kombizz, is there any chance that we could be landing at Imam Khomeini Airport if we fly to Iran or are u giving us this info in advance?

All of airlines will be landed on IKIA, unless you decided not to learn Farsi or arabic and would like to use your own Irish chute !

Not everybody is smart as you !
WHY don't you apply as a translator to the Airport Seir-o-Safar company? Perhaps you could DO IT instead !

He is not touchy at all.
He thinks I am smart.
But maybe that is just his chat up line that he uses on all the girls. ;)
I would translate the thing, but I dont speak a word of Farsi. ;)
