Air France and KLM is putting Iran on sale for about $668 roundtrip. We found availability from:
- San Francisco [SFO]
- Los Angeles [LAX]
- New York [JFK]
- Boston [BOS]
- Washington D.C. [IAD]
If you are planning to go, in addition the long wait time to get a visa (about 2 months for Americans), you must hire a license tour guide. Rapid Travel Chai (he has been pretty much everywhere) wrote about his experience going to Iran. And here’s one from TravelBloggerBuzz on his recent experience.
One bit of interesting tidbit we learned recently: AT&T roaming works in Iran now and is the only carrier with such agreement. So if you have AT&T service, you can get your messages. Remember to get a VPN service if you want to access social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.
