London, England (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
IranAir.co.uk, the English language website published by the London office of Iran Air, is already attracting regular visitors from USA and Canada and in response to requests for passengers wishing to use the online booking facility, IranAir have taken the initiative to introduce online bookings in US Dollars, as well as British Pounds. Fares can now be displayed -- and paid -- in either currency, via the website, with online booking confirmation for flights throughout the
Payment can be made using all major Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards, and card payment transactions are protected using the "Verified by Visa" or "Mastercard Securecode" authentication technology. Web bookings through Iranair.co.uk will continue to be managed on IranAir's behalf by online flight specialists, Alternative Airlines.
Mr Daryoush Niknam, UK General Manager of IranAir said: "Currently these dollar fares are only available on IranAir operated flights, but we are negotiating to add interlining opportunities connecting our regular flights from London Heathrow with those of Transatlantic carriers operating from the main US gateways using a single dollar based fare. We know that this is already significant demand for our services from residents of North America and that their preference is to book on-line using Dollars. With this new initiative in place, we are expecting an increasing amount of US and Canada originating passengers to use our competitively-priced Heathrow flights to Tehran."
For summer 2010, IranAir operate 4 flights per week between London Heathrow and Tehran using either a Boeing 747 or Airbus A300 aircraft.
