There is no direct transfer that I know of for this.

Transfer the contacts to an email application and then transfer to the iPhone. You need a syncing program to do this.
If your contacts are synced with Google then:
Login to  to access your contacts.
Choose export and select the old version of Google Contacts.
Select all contacts and via the menu select export.
Export to vCard format.
Create an Apple iCloud account.
Import your contacts via the .vcf file into iCloud.
By connecting to your iCloud account from your iPhone you can access all the contacts that were imported.
