Mahan Air had A321 before, but on lease. Indeed, this can be the first A321. The first B757 to Iran was some months ago as well :o

Persian Gulf Airlines

Hey guy, first post here. Half Iranian half Turkish Turk born and raised and living in NL.

I was thinking about the post-sanctions airline industry in Iran. Aside from all the domestic lines, and Iran Air and Mahan, isn't it smart to immediately start an airline with the name of 'Persian Gulf Airlines/ways'? Multiple birds in one stone. Firstly, our Arab friends in the neighbourhood can't decide to rename the Gulf. Second, it would have a nice/luxurious name for foreign travel/transit, in it's quest to compete with the ME3. Thirdly, Iran isn't Persia anymore, we have many groups in our country. But the gulf's name is undisputed, so it wouldn't make anybody feel left out. So Persian Gulf Airlines it is?

At least the trademark should be made. I'm not a dreaming fanboy that wants 300 A380's within six months after sanctions are lifted

And here comes a new operator.



Fonts for title could have been better for both languages and coloured engines would have looked nice too.

This was the previous operator, wish this was their livery and name even if in orange, more so since the livery, logo and name is no more in service with rebranded xpressair. It even looks kind of like presstv.font and colour scheme

737-500 not bad. Can't wait till these sanctions are lifted. Immediately some 100 lightly used second hand aircraft can be imported.


PS: guys, don't we have some more pics of the recently purchased a340-600s?? Itching to see them. Merci.

Very very nice thanks! Awesome bar too! Though it might need some fit and finish.

These partially replace the 747-300s right? Those will be taken out of commission I presume?

Are there any other deals in the works for 'new' aircraft? Aircraft like these are a gigantic improvement, and many a340s will be coming online soon, as other retire them. As a bridge gap, we can use them! Afterwards we can order new of course.

I have no idea about the B747-300s. They are actually used to Kerman and Bandar Abbas flights

Indeed, big airlines are retiring good airplanes at a low age. Golden oppertunity for Mahan Air.

I wish Iran Air could do the same as Mahan Air. But their situation is different, cause they are state-owned, and want to buy new aircraft. So they are waiting for sanctions to be removed. Hopefully we will see big Iranian orders for Boeing and Airbus in late-2015
