no, mahan uses their A300-600 only for domestic routes or to dubai...

I think Iran Air is always the cheapest, but their website is out of time...
Mahan's homepage is modern and you can book your flight without problems.

actually I saw on flightstats.com that they had used in the month December twice their A300-600
Mahan Air and Iran Air are almost the same in terms of prices, you also have a better service and more modern cabine on Mahan

Iran bans airlines' purchase of old planes

Iran's minister of roads and transportation has declared that the Iranian airlines will no longer be allowed to buy cheap or old airplanes.

"[Iranian] Airlines are allowed to buy planes produced after 1995, but in the near future they will be allowed to purchase only planes that are produced after 2000," IRNA quoted Hamid Behbahani as saying.

Behbahani was speaking at Iran's first exhibition on investment opportunities in the airport industry and aviation on Saturday.

He said that Iran has 193 passenger planes, of which 25 were purchased this year (Iranian calendar).

"Just after the Islamic Revolution, Iran had only 20 passenger planes and four years ago Iran had 102 planes," Behbahani added.

Plane catches fire in Iran, injures at least 40

TEHRAN (Reuters) - At least 40 Iranians were injured when a Russian-made Tupolev aircraft caught fire as it landed in northeastern Iran on Sunday, state radio said.

"About 42 passengers, out of 157 aboard, were injured when the plane was landing at Mashhad city's airport," said Gholamreza Massoumi, head of Iran's emergency medical services.

There were no fatalities, said Iran's civil aviation spokesman Reza Jafarzadeh.

The official IRNA news agency said the incident occurred when the rear end of the plane, which belonged to Iran's domestic Taban Airliner, caught fire while landing.

Mashhad is a popular destination for pilgrims among Iran's majority Shi'ite Muslims.

The cause of the incident was being investigated, IRNA said.

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency said on Sunday it will investigate the reasons behind the fire and said "weather conditions and visibility problems were most likely behind the incident," state-run news agency RIA-Novosti reported.

"The airplane touched the ground with a large load, resulting in part of the runway being damaged," it said.

In the worst plane crash in Iran in the past six years, a Tupolev aircraft crashed in 2009 in Iran on its way to Armenia, after catching fire mid-air and crashing into farmland killing all 168 people on board.

Iran has suffered a string of crashes in the past few decades, many involving Russian-made aircraft.

U.S. sanctions against Iran have prevented it from buying new aircraft or spare parts from the West, forcing it to add to its aging fleet of Boeing and Airbus planes with aircraft from Russia and other former Soviet Union states.

After 2000???? How will they do that? In Iran there are only 2/3 Airplanes which are produced after 2000 : The Aseman ATR72 and the Iran Air A320 EP-IEG

I hope Iranian Airlines will stopp flying these TU-154.

Disaster averted as Iran Air flight lands with burst tyres

A major Republic Day disaster was averted at Mumbai Airport on Tuesday when an Iran Air Boeing-747 aircraft managed to land safely despite a set of burst tyres.

All 117 passengers and crew on the Tehran-Mumbai IR-810 were reported safe, according to airport sources.

The incident, which occurred around 8 am, was noticed by the pilot of the aircraft after landing as he was moving towards the passenger terminal.

He immediately alerted the concerned authorities and the aircraft was moved to a different location at Parking Bay No 49 where the passengers disembarked.

The airport officials carried out an inspection of the runway but nothing that could have led to the tyres bursting was found, sources revealed.

There was no impact on normal flight operations due to the incident.

Being a Tuesday, there will be restricted flight operations on account of the regular weekly runway maintenance that will be taken up from noon to 6 pm.

The inclusion of Mahan Air will see the number of West Asian airlines serving KLIA increase to nine, offering 64 flights weekly to various capital cities.

Currently, the other West Asian airlines flying to KLIA are Iran Air, Emirates, Gulf Air, Saudi Arabian Airline, Etihad, Qatar Airways, Kuwait Airways and Yemenia Yemen Airways.

They should launch a flight from Shiraz to Istanbul..that;d be a good route to take.if Shirazis get connected to Turkey they can fly with Turkish to all over the places like Mashad and Tabriz..

i understand if the flight to KL is from IKA, but from SHZ? Thats just an odd route. turkey from SHZ would be much more profitable. I would say that iranian carriers need to fly to more profitable destinations instead of others. One that can come into my head for mahan is LHR. With the recent increase in slot availability, i wouldnt think they would have too much trouble getting one
