Iran to Relocate Ahvaz Airport
Iranian authorities plan to relocate Ahvaz airport after discovering an oil field under the runway. Ahvaz is the capital of the oil rich southern province of Khuzestan.
The ministry of oil will acquire the airport and a new airport will be built 15 km (9 miles) outside the city, the director of Iran’s Airports Organization told the state TV. (IRIB, 28 December)
