IRAN: The Tehran metro started running to Mehrabad Airport on March 15, when a branch of Line 4 opened with a station serving Terminals 1 & 2 and one serving Terminals 4 & 6.

The 2·8 km branch runs southwest from a new station at Bimeh, between Meydan-e Azadi and Sharak-e Ekbatan. A shuttle service operates from Bimeh using three-car trainsets with additional luggage space.

The branch was built by Boland Payeh Co under an EPC contract. Test running began on January 10.
