Turkish Airlines announced the launch of flights to Iran’s southern city of Ahvaz. Ahvaz flights planned as 4 flights per week with Kermanshah as of 2 frequencies Istanbul –Kermanshah – Ahvaz (KSH-AWZ) – Istanbul and 2 frequencies Istanbul – Ahvaz – Kermanshah (AWZ-KSH) – Istanbul and will be launched as of March 15, 2015.
Ahvaz is situated on the banks of the Karoun River, which splits the city into two large districts. Being an oil business oriented city, there are not alot of interesting places to see in Ahvaz. Most people go to Kianpars street at night and stroll amongst the shops. You could visit the old and hectic bazaar area (Taleqani Street). The best places in Ahvaz are situated alongside the river. The river boulevard is a nice place to stroll and has many parks. One of the attractions of Ahvaz is the oil well flares situated on the border of the city, but it's only nice at night time. You can also rent a boat and enjoy sailing on Karoun river.
