Iran is upgrading its infrastructure with several new airport train connections.

In Mashhad, a new metro link to the city's airport opened on February 6.

The 6 kilometre (4 mile) extension of Metro Line 1 runs southeast from Ghadir, and makes a stop at Parvaz, before continuing on to Mashhad Hashemi Nejad International (MHD) Airport. Mashhad's metro system opened in 2011 and operates at speeds of up to 80 km/h.

Meanwhile, construction is almost complete on the extension of Tehran's metro to Mehrabad Airport, the city's second busiest air hub. The new link is projected to open in March 2016.
