Iran Air’s Vintage Ads

Anyone up for a direct flight to Tehran? After 34 years, the possibility of boarding a plane in New York City and arriving in Iran in 11 hours and 15 minutes may be more likely than ever. If the flights resume, we hope some of Iran Air’s more interesting advertising will too, like the (now vintage) print ads detailing the marvels to be found at the “crossroads of the world” and the airline’s informative slogan “We Take You There, We Take You Back.” Only one request: please update your fleet before flying us across the ocean.
