Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport (IATA: IKA) is the only international airport in Tehran, Iran.  IKA is located 30 km southwest of Tehran city center, that’s why you should know how to reach Tehran before your arrival. 

do you need to see Tehran Metro Map ? Here it is.

Metro in Tehran is not 24 hours so this is the schedule of IKA metro station :

Reaching  to Tehran by metro is a great decision for time and money saving. As it is 35 mins to get to Tehran and costs only 7,000 Tomans which is equal to 0.75 cents  🙂 unbelievably less than a dollar.  It is not crowded at all  you may a have a wagon for yourself to seat wherever you want and Metro is much safer and you will escape heavy traffic of Tehran entrance.

Hello Shamim... In July I will visit Tehran (2-3 days)... Is there a daily card or 48 hours?... Could you tell me the timetable for returning to the airport?... Is there bus from Shahre Aftab Metro to Ika airport? Thank you very much... It is difficult to find information about Tehran metro.

Hello Juan, Thank you for your comment. There is no daily card or 48 hours for the airport, but when you buy the ticket you can use it whenever you want. There is a chargeable ticket for Other lines of the Tehran metro so you can use for your whole trip. I updated the timetable in the article. From Shahre Aftab there are shared taxies to IKA airport.
