Dumb move. I know why it is being considered. It is easier to relax social restrictions there.

But Tehran's advantage is that it offers a much shorter route from Europe to Far East. It's ideal as a hub. Kish has the same disadvantage as Persian Gulf cities such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha.


If they go ahead they should rename Kish Air to Persian Gulf or Persian. Or create a proper new airline instead.

By far the best option in my view.

I still would like to see more modern concepts like Etihad. Or an airline that puts khate mikhi script on its tail. In white on dark blue. It would be very elegant with the top of the tail similar to this Iran Air one.

The point in making Kish to an aviation hub is to connect India, Malaysia, UAE, Syria and other Persian Gulf States with each other. Nothing about Far East or Europe is mentioned.

Isn't Kish situated at a great place then?

Yes but the problem is that that route will have little competitive advantage against Persian Gulf carriers.

I believe anything is good for Kish. It isn't exactly anything bad and it doesn't make any "zarar', so why not?

But there is one major problem: the major international airport that serves Tehran (Imam Khomeini International Airport) is located at an altitude of 1,007 meters (3,305 feet). As such, you're going to need effectively the length of the entire runways at the airport for a full-laden plane to take off during the summer months, and that could cut the range of airliners flying out of the airport.

Iran plans Airbus, Boeing purchases under finance deals

http://news.yahoo.com/iran-plans-air...130647427.html

Quote:
Tehran (AFP) - Iran plans to buy Airbus and Boeing passenger planes through long-term payment agreements once a nuclear accord with world powers is implemented, the transport minister said.

Iran desperately wants to upgrade its ageing fleet, which has been hamstrung by nuclear-related and other sanctions, making even spare parts precariously difficult to source.

To purchase new planes, "our negotiations have been mostly with Airbus and Boeing, and we have provided them with our plans and needs until 2020," Abbas Akhoundi was quoted as saying in Monday's Iran government daily.

Actually Iran is Persia...

Iran was called Persia before 1935 and both names are still UN recognized and politically correct.

Though not every Iranian is Persian, because of migration and etc. But that's an issue every country has to deal with.

I'm talking about something else... I'm talking about the spirit of the country. Persia (I'm referring to the country before 1978) was a great country built over the traditions and ideology (world outlook) of Persia. Iran is based over the Islamic ideology. I'm a huge admirer of what Persia used to be. Hope to see that country again on the maps, not the current idiotic regime who ruined the country. Persia was a whole different world as I've already said.

Mahan air to Copenhagen!
The first flights between Denmark and Iran will begin in March 2016, operated by Iranian airline Mahan Air, ending an eight-year suspension of direct flights between the capitals of the two countries, Copenhagen Airport A/S said on Tuesday.

Copenhagen is a great news! I had saved it for my monthly report here on the last day of the month

The Asian routes Mahan Air plans to open are Mashhad - Delhi and Tehran - Tokyo

Iran Aseman acquires first two B737-400s

Iran Aseman Airlines (EP, Tehran Mehrabad) has announced on its Facebook page that it has acquired its first two B737-400s, two ex-Malaysia Airlines (MH, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) aircraft to be registered in Iran as EP-APH and EP-API.

Iran Aseman therefore follows in foot steps of Caspian Airlines (IV, Tehran Mehrabad) which has also already acquired ex-Malaysia B737-400s to renew its fleet.

The narrowbody fleet of Iran Aseman currently consists of two A320-200s and three B727-200Adv. passenger aircraft as well as a single B727-200(F) freighter.

They should have bought some Boeing 737-800 which are below 10 years.

Mahan Air is the only airline that is doing great work, given the situation.

Iran Air CEO is a joke.

The other airlines are just ridiculous. We have too many.

I think Iran should only have 3 airlines at this point. We need 400 planes and three airlines are more than enough until the country gets richer.

We should just by new planes
Less than 3 hour flights: CS100, CS300, 737 MAX 7, 8 , 9 and Airbus A319neo, A320neo, A321neo

Some European destinations: 737 MAX 9, A321neo

Medium and long haul:
787 (all types), 777-300ER, A330neo, A350-900, A350-1000

I agree, but I would go for the 777x

It's much more effecient, looks prettier, ideal for high demand destinations like Kuala Lumpur, London, Paris, Frankfurt and hopefully one day the USA and Canada

I don't like flying in the A319, it's so uncomfortable. I think the CS300 or A320 wuld do the job great or 737s

As of now maybe 777-300ER for long haul then 737s and A320s can do short and medium hauls. What about domestic operations? Will ATR-72s be good?
