Speaking in a meeting of Iran's high ranking officials in air transportation, he said that for the first few months Iran was ready to offer financial facilities for establishment of flights to those countries which are of low economic profits.

He further called on officials to do the necessary planning to set up direct flights to such countries as Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan and said these air links will gradually become profitable after a while.

Another speaker in the meeting, managing director of Iran Air Company Farhad Parvaresh said his company possesses the standards required for flights to enter the European Union air space as of 2017.
