    Can I use snapp from Tehran internation airport?

    • HI Tehran Hostel

      You can use the Snapp to get from the city to the airport. But not reversely. The application doesn’t work in the airport because of the security reasons and the fact that there’s no parking lot for the Snapp cars in the airport. So, you cannot order a Snapp from the IKA to town.

  10. Hafeezullah

    Please update the app
