We have experienced flight crashes in Iran like many other destinations all around the world. Some of the airplanes working in different routes are old and this is the reason the people think it wouldn’t be wise to get around by air during an Iran trip.

Although if we look exactly at the numbers and check out the accidents and crashes during the past 40 years, the safety of flying over Iran with Iranian domestic flights shows itself very well. When you are choosing your domestic flight, you can also check the aircraft type and book the new ones.
