Yazd Air is Iran's newest carrier and will be based in the city of Yazd, which is located in central Iran. As of June 2023, the airline is still in their start-up phase. They own 5 aircrafts and plan to fly a mixture of international and domestic routes. For their international flights they currently have two Airbus A310s and for their shorter regional flights, they will be using the British Aerospace 146 and Embraer ERJ-145. Currently the airline is being supported by Mahan Air, which is Iran's 2nd largest airline, based in Tehran.
Yazd Air has not released their checked or carry-on baggage policy.
As the airline is still in their start-up phase, they have not confirmed their carry-on baggage allowance yet.
All carry-on baggage will be required to fit in the overhead lockers or under the seat in front. Ensure that you are not carrying any prohibited items in your carry-on baggage, and make sure to store them in your checked baggage, including any fluid that exceeds 100ml, unless the item is banned in your destination country. If you're carrying prohibited items and they are found by security or the immigration department, they could be confiscated.
You can bring fluid under 100ml in your carry-on baggage, and it must be packed in a plastic bag for the security check.
Details for Yazd Air's checked baggage allowance have not been confirmed yet.
The checked baggage will not be allowed to exceed 32kg due to international health and safety regulations, or exceed the permitted size allowance.
You can expect extra fees if your baggage exceeds the baggage allowance. You can add excess baggage to your booking when using Alternative Airlines to book flights. We also have a customer service team which will help you with any enquiries you may have.
Yazd Air has not released any information around the cabin classes that are available onboard their flights. For the shorter, regional flights it is likely that they will only offer Economy class. On longer, international flights they could even offer a premium or business class, however nothing is confirmed until Yazd Air begins operations.
Yazd Air passengers will be expected to check-in at the airport. The airline may offer an online check-in service once they have begun operations, however this is not yet known.
There has been no information around whether online check-in will be available.
Yazd Air has not announced a recommended check-in time.
We suggest that passengers arrive as early as possible for their flights, which is usually around 2 hours before scheduled departure, if flying an international flight. The recommended check-in time will vary depending on departure airport, so please familiarise yourself with the suggested check-in time at your departure airport.
As of June 2023, the airline has confirmed routes to 2 destinations within Iran, as well as 4 international destinations, with the expectation of more routes to be added as Yazd Air develops over the years.
