Notes

^a Austrian Airlines's flight from Vienna to Shiraz continues on to Isfahan. However, the airline does not have traffic rights to transport passengers solely between Shiraz and Isfahan.

^b According to Iranian laws direct passenger flights to Antalya are banned[4], So Pegasus Airlines and SunExpress seasonal charter flights from Shiraz to Antalya have a stopover in Adana. However, these airlines do not carry local traffic between Shiraz 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.
