Mahan air to use the "new" A340

Mahan Air have today announced that they are planning on boosting capacity on the Birmingham service shortly with the introduction of A340-300's on the route - subject to final Government approval!!

The airline is currently in the process of acquiring the aircraft (the first A340 for the airline) and is being prepared for service. The aircraft type will initially only be operating flights to Birmingham along with Bangkok. Full details along with dates will be available soon! Please remember that things change, just look what happened with the 747-400...which was supposed to be operating on the Birmingham-Tehran route last year but nothing happened.

What other small aircraft are produced in Iran? I remember seeing some others on the site of an Iranian company but I can't remember more now.

Thank you dear

Though Hesa's site (at least the English version) is pretty much useless. It's not important anyway.

Iran to ban airlines not using the term 'Persian Gulf'

Iran has warned that airlines will be banned from flying into its airspace, unless they use the term "Persian Gulf" on their in-flight monitors.

The transport minister has threatened to impound planes that fail to comply.

The nation is most insistent that the stretch of water separating it from its southern neighbours should be known as the Persian Gulf.

To call it the Gulf, annoys the authorities; to call it the Arabian Gulf, infuriates them even more.

Conferences are held to make the matter quite clear, an ancient map with definitive proof of the correct name was sent on a world tour.

And recently a foreign member of the cabin crew working for an Iranian airline was sacked and expelled from Iran when he got it wrong.

Now the Iranian transport minister has given foreign airlines 15 days to change the name to Persian Gulf on their in flight monitors.

If they failed, they would be prevented from entering Iranian airspace, he warned.

And if the offence was repeated, foreign airliners would be grounded and refused permission to leave Iran.

Numerous Arab airlines fly into Iran every day, not to mention Europeans and others, so it remains to be seen how they will respond.

As for the minister, Hamid Behbahani, it may or may not be a coincidence that he is making a stand on this patriotic matter at a time when he is facing calls for his impeachment for alleged lack of competence.

Iran expels foreign steward over Persian Gulf row

A Greek steward working for an Iranian airliner has been dismissed over insistence on the use of a forged term instead of Persian Gulf and threatening passengers during a flight.

The steward working for Kish Air had reportedly threatened to arrest passengers who complained against the use of the forged term 'Arabian Gulf' on the plane's in-flight monitors instead of the internationally-recognized term 'Persian Gulf.'

Iran's Minister of Roads and Transportation Hamid Behbahani warned on Sunday that any foreign airline that uses the forged term will be barred from Iran's airspace, Mehr news agency reported.

He has also ordered Iran's civil aviation authority to reprimand the Kish Air officials.

Gholam-Reza Rezayian, the head of Iran's Immigration and Foreign Nationals Police, said the Greek steward was summoned to the Kish police on Saturday night and his residency permit was cancelled "due to his inappropriate and irresponsible behavior."

When the foreign steward used the forged term, Iranian passengers protested but he insulted the passengers.

The Greek attendant had even claimed that he has the authority to arrest the Iranian passengers who had protested against his misbehavior, Rezayian added.

The 175-kilogram composites aircraft would travel a 1,500 km distance in three hours and with a maximum speed of 240 km per hour, Vahidi said.

http://twocircles.net/2010feb08/iran..._unveiled.html
1500km in 3 hrs is 500km/h not 240 km/hr. Looks like the revolutionary gaurds doing maths again

Id like to see Iran stop emirates, qatar, Gulf air and Etihad flying into iran over this persian/arabian gulf issue. if that was the case Iran would stop functioning cos everyone knows the only reason Iran is not imploding is becasue of the black market economy run via the gulf states.
So its the arabs that should be respected by Iran, dont you think?

haha not really, Turkey is also one of our markets and so is russia, china and India and germany for a part
Iran doesn't need arabian countries to develop...
and arab countries can't do anything, Iran is an important key and force in the region,
also much of investments of Dubai are coming from Iran, also the arab countries in the persian gulf region have a large Iranian community

look, that's not the problem, people can name it whatever they want...
but not at official places or even on airplane screens, look at your atlas it says PERSIAN gulf and it was always the Persian gulf...it's just a matter of respect
and not only arabs call it arabian gulf even some westerners even NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIQ some times...the name Arabian gulf DOESN'T exist so I don't know why some people use it
I also don't call the Mexican gulf, the Venezuelian gulf it's just incorrect...
