Iran and Australia have reached an agreement to launch a direct flight between the two countries in near future, IRNA quoted Iranian ambassador in Canberra on Saturday.

According to Abdolhossein Vahaji, the two countries signed an initial agreement in November 2016 and an executive meeting between Iranian airliner Mahan Air and the Australian side is scheduled for late-January to put the reached agreement into effect.

The launch of direct flights between Iran and Australia will lead to development in their bilateral relations, the diplomat noted.

According to the agreement, the two sides’ aircrafts can cross each other’s airspace, land and get services and the establishment of direct flights between the two countries’ cities, including flights between Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth and the Iranian cities of Tehran, Mashhad, Shiraz and Isfahan is also covered in the document.
