Notes

^a Austrian Airlines' flight from Vienna makes a stop in Shiraz but the return flight to Vienna is direct.

^b According to Iranian laws direct passenger flights to Antalya are banned[3], So AtlasGlobal, Freebird Airlines, Pegasus Airlines and Tailwind Airlines seasonal charter flights from Isfahan to Antalya have a stopover in Adana. However, these airlines do not carry local traffic between Isfahan and Adana. The return flights also has the same conditions. This law applies only to passenger flights and does not include VIP, Cargo or ferry flights.
