Iran. Iran. Iran. Iran. And Iran Air. They’re the answer. They really are. And if you got them right, well done.
Now we’ll tell you the purpose of the quiz.
we believe that an airline is only as great as its country of origin.
So that by telling you about Iran, her potential and resources, and how they’re put to use, we tell you more about Iran Air than if we just promised tastier food and prettier girls to serve it.
Not that we don’t serve the most delicious food. We do. Some of it’s Persian and made from recipes thousands of years old. But all of it’s fresh on every flight.
And it’s not as if you won’t find pretty girls on our planes, either. You will. From France, Germany and England as well as from Iran.
What’s more you’ll find them on flights to twenty-seven major cities throughout the world.
Including the only non-stop service between New York and Theran.
A distance of over 6,200 miles covered with ease by our new 747SP. The ‘Special Performer’ Jumbo.
It flies a mile above normal air routes. A mile above the bad weather.
Making it the most comfortable plane in the air.
And that’s not pie in the sky. It’s a fact. Like everything else on this page.
