"Tehran’s international airport is in the early stages of a gradual reinvention, part of a long-term plan to boost trade and turn Iran into a regional hub after its nuclear deal. Central to these hopes are two new terminals and a vast airport free-trade area that includes sections for industry, logistics, hotels and conference centers. While still in its early stages, the government is hoping the overarching development—called Imam Khomeini Airport City—will convince foreign companies and international carriers to start choosing Tehran over other regional hubs... Iran has hired Netherlands Airport Consultants, or NACO, which has worked on major airport projects in Mexico City, Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, as its main adviser."
