The website has bern poorly updated the last weeks, I have noticed. For example on the pictures on the front page it says two weekly to Suleymaniyah on the Farsi page and one weekly on the English.

Amin do you know why Mahan has scrapped the a321 they bought this year ? Since they dont have any a320s in their fleet for which they could use the spare parts i dont know why they did it...

And you know what happened with mahans 744s? I thought they should be sold to an african start up airline, but i saw them parked at Ika..

Thank you:-)

Hello I have to talked to some people and the case is indeed very unclear.

The A321 was scrapped and the reason is unknown.

When I was at IKA in the summer I saw two of Mahan Air's B744s. One all white and one with "Smile Air" livery. They are still there and haven't been transferred to Smile Air, Ghana.
Another Mahan Air B744 is also grounded.

Just heard that the A321 was scrapped to be used as spare parts for A320/321 on behalf of the Mahan Air maintenance that also do maintenance for other Middle Eastern airlines and for example the Iranian Gov.

Imam Khomeini airport is just a gag. Wanted to get something to eat there and since behind the passport control there is only a cafe and nothing at the departure level, searched for restaurants in the arrival area. Ended up in an iranian restaurant at the parking area, which was ridiculous. After half an hour they served me dry and burned kebap ... How can an airport which is THE gateway for tourists have only two shabby, rundown and dirty restaurants with bad service, food and a terrible atmosphere ? They even dont have an english menu (or english speaking staff) ! Not only the restaurants are a gag at this airport, there are 100 more points which are terrible, but i dont want to get started...

It is such a pity that this beautiful country with its awesome people and great culture has been ruined by its government.

If you go to Mehrabad you will pass the Headquarter of the Civil Aviation Organization, which consists of some rundown buildings... What a great representation for the iranian aviation.

The airport is a disgrace.

The only way around it is if we have private airlines and they build their own terminals.

I am generally economically in the left but in Iran for anything to function it has to be private.

I work in investment banking and cover a lot of airline companies. I fly around a lot. Mostly in Europe and the United States. I have studied many airlines and ran a lot of economic models.

I think it would be great if the private sector in Iran would set up a new airline to transform the industry and also compete with the Persian Gulf carriers. It could even get around serving alchol on medium and long haul flights if it was registered somewhere else like foreign airlines.

My ideas

Name: Persian Airlines
Brand it as: PERSIAN
Motto / Slogan: 2500 Years of Hospitality

Livery: something with blue, grey and white. I have no idea but something like the Boeing livery, or elements from ANA and Etihad. I could also see a lot of Mikhi script on the tail

Hub: IKA
- Would need two connected adjacent terminals for domestic and international (i.e. Terminal 2A and 2B)

Strategy:
- Smaller planes but more frequent flights
- Become key hub for Central Asia, Caucasus, and the Eastern Mediterranean

Short Haul (<3.5 hrs)
Destinations: Major Iranian cities in terms of economy and tourism, Central Asia, Russia, Caucasus, Middle East, Eastern Mediterranean
Plane: ~40 Bombardier CS300

Total seats: 140
Business: none
Economy: 140 seats (28 rows in 2-3 format)
Seat width: 18.5'' with middle seat 19.0''
Seat pitch: 32"
Seats need no TVs but should all have power plug and USB sockets
Free WiFi and application for people to watch movies and flight information on devices
Free drinks (non-alcoholic)
Snacks (not food) can be purchased


Medium Haul (>3.5 hrs, <6hrs)
Destinations: Europe, Indian sub continent
Plane: ~30 Boeing 737 Max 9

Total seats: 156
Business: 18 seats (6 rows in 2-1 format, all seats become fully flat beds)
Economy: 138 seats (23 rows in 3-3 format)
Seat width: 17.5"
Seat pitch: 32"
All seats Have power plug and USB cable
All seats have TV
Food and drink served (hopefully with alcohol)


Long Haul (>6hrs)
Destinations: North America (Start with San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Houston, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Montreal, New York, Washington DC and expand), Asia-Pacific (including Australia)
Plane: ~30 Boeing 787-8 and ~10 Boeing 787-9

Would have between 20 and 30 business class seats
Economy would be laid out in a 2-4-2 format and not the current 3-3-3 format that most airlines employ and which is uncomfortable


Summary of planes
40 Bombardier CS300 for short haul
30 Boeing 737 MAX 9 for medium haul
40 Boeing 787 (-8 and -9) for long haul


Key attarctiveness of the airline would be
- single hub
- modern terminal
- frequency of flights / shoryer transit
- modern pretty planes
- very pretty interior
- comfortable seats
- smaller planes (shorter boarding and exit)

Strengths would be
- modern planes which are very cost efficient
- only one hub so lower maintenance cost and more efficient network
- low maintenance and training costs
- high plane utilization as they can easily be exchanged
- would be run similiar to low cost carriers in the US (very lean) but appear to be a luxury airline


With sanctions being lifted there should be plans to set something like this up to become operational in 3 years.

I like the slogan, but Persian Airlines...

It's too cliché + it doesn't sound good as we have already IranAir.

I would much rather see IranAir developing, but as you are speaking of a new airline I would propose something else than Persian, we have plenty of Persian names which are original and can be used for branding.

I agree with most of it except for two things.

It is not a habit for Iranian carriers not to offer food on their flights.
And I think we should keep this exclusivity whitin Iran.

I am not a fan of buying food on a plane, it makes me feel flying low-cost.
Iranian carriers are known for their excellent service!

This model of buying snacks and food is mostly used by American carriers and low-cost ones in Europe, which as I said dislike and brings the image of the carrier down.

Business class is needed inside Iran as it is always full when I am on a domestic flight, as there is always demand for it.

Alcohol will never be allowed in an Iranian carrier as even the import of it is forbidden.

Perhaps we can be original and work with all kinds of thee, coffee, non-alcoholic cocktails and etc.

North American flights will not happen as you need diplomatic relations for that and I don't see this happening anytime soon.

Long distance flights need a proper amount of both business and first class seats.

This is not only important for marketing purposes, but if we want to be the best, we have to have the best product in the market.

You were mentioning some destinations in the United states.
Iranian-Americans are mostly upper class and can afford to fly in luxury, not only Iranians, but also Americans/Asians and etc. who wants to connect through Tehran.

Small planes and bigger frequency is not always the answer as you have to find enough slots at the Airport at the right time of the day.

Iran talking to six countries to buy aircraft

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2015/1...sanctions-IATA

Quote:
Iran is in talks with six countries, including Brazil, for purchase of new commercial aircraft to renovate the country’s aviation fleet after the removal of sanctions, an official says.

Executives of plane manufacturers from France, Brazil, Canada, Russia, Japan and China have traveled to Iran and introduced their products, Secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines Maqsoud As’adi-Samani said.

“After the Vienna agreement, chief executives or sales managers of all aircraft manufacturers have visited Iran for negotiations on selling planes,” he told the Tasnim news agency.

Talks still continue between the Iranian airlines and the Brazilians but no agreement has been signed yet with either of the companies, As’adi-Samani said.

Officials have said Iran would need between 400-500 new aircraft worth at least $20 billion in the next decade.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), the world’s largest airline body, says it will look to advise Iran on modernizing its aviation operations.

IATA Chairman and Chief Executive Tony Tyler said Iran’s aviation industry is set for a massive boom with tens of millions to start flying in and out the country after sanctions after lifted.

His association wants to have “a strong presence in the country”, Tyler said on the sidelines of the IATA Aviation Day Middle East and Africa conference in Abu Dhabi, cited by the Emirati media.

IATA sees 31.6 million new air travelers in Iran by 2034. There are currently 12 million passengers traveling by air in the country, whose numbers will rise to 43 million, the association said.

The country of 80 million people is being coveted by international airlines as the Middle East’s biggest potential aviation market.

“It’s going to be huge,” said Tyler whose association represents Iranian carriers Iran Air and Mahan Air among over 250 global airlines.

IATA also wants to set up payment plans for airlines and travel agents selling airfares in Iran, he added.

Iran’s tourism officials have said they expect a “tsunami” of foreign tourists when Western sanctions are lifted on the country, meaning they have to rush through their transportation development plans.

The Iranian government plans to spend heavily to develop its tourism industry in an ambitious plan aimed at attracting 20 million foreign travelers and up to $30 billion in revenues a year by 2025.

Maybe you are right. I just feel Persian is a luxury brand. But agree name and livery are always the toughest.

I know but it is more about running a lean professional airline. Iranian airlines are not run as businesses. Prices are regulated. None of them would survive in a fre market.

No US airline offers free snacks on domestic routes, not even on 6 hour transatlantic routes. The exception are the low cost cariers such as JetBlue and Southwest who offer free snacks and free WiFi.

Low cost is not always worse service but a leaner structure.


Quote:

Maybe. I just feel on short haul flights it is ridiculous.
Again in Iran prices are artifical but if business class was needed the 737 MAX 8 would be more suitable.


Quote:

Not in Iran. But what if purchased abroad and served on international routes. Similar to what foreign airlines do. Maybe in a few years.

North American flights will happen in the next 5 years.

Agree on more business. Not sure about First. Companies don't pay for first class and very few individuals pay for it.

Heathrow is a good example. I agree

I know that it is a difficult topic but since nobody until now here has talked about it, i am interested in knowing why Mahan Air is doing these suspicious activities in Syria. For me i can not understand why a private airline is involved in these political affairs... Not only that they are supporting the Assad regime, they are also supporting the Hisbollah. Can somebody might give a comment on this topic ? Thank you:-)
