New Tehran Mehrabad Airport metro link

As we mentioned in our recent blog post about the opening Masshad Airport's new metro link in February, Iran is investing heavily in transportation infrastructure.

Now, Tehran's Mehrabad Airport (THR) received its own new metro link.

Service started on March 15th, and was inaugurated on March 29th.

A new 3 kilometre (1.5 mile) metro line extension runs southwest from Bimeh station, located between Meydan-e Azadi and Sharak-e Ekbatan stations.

The Bimeh branch line uses short trains with extra luggage space to shuttle passengers to/from 2 stations at Tehran Mehrabad Airport:
  • Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are served by the first station
  • Terminal 4 and Terminal 6 are served by the second station
