Do we know what route this new plane is taking? Also, does anyone know what Mahan intends to do with these 7 new planes? Will they start new routes, or open the ones they had promised earlier, like Shanghai and Stockholm?

no, the new planes won't replace the old A300B2 and B4, they have just joined Mahan Air fleet after heavy maintenance. (They are all active now) Some A300-600 will oporate domestic routes from Mahan's hub Mashad to other destinations like Kish.

Ok very interesting. I would have thought they would used in some international routes as they are much nicer as opposed to some of the older 310s. But i think a great market for them are foreign routes but from other cities. I read an interview where a mahan exec said that the gov doesnt want mahan competing with famous iran air routes. But i think a great area for growth are off routes like shiraz - frankfurt, mashhasd - amsterdam. They can really work such routes well. Are you listening mahan??

Iran renewing air transport fleet

Iran has added 1,330 seats to its air transport fleet during the past 21 days through replacing outdated Tupolev planes with a number of Boeings and Airbuses, the deputy roads and transportation minister said here on Sunday.
The Islamic Republic of Iran News Network quoted Reza Nakhjavani as saying that since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2010) 2,002 seats have been added to Iran’s air transport fleet.

Last week, the Roads and Transportation Minister Hamid Behbahani, urged domestic airlines to replace worn-out Tupolev planes with modern ones.

“Last year I said the replacement should be done by March 2011,” the minister noted.

“I have set a five-month deadline to Iran Airtour as the carrier which holds the highest number of Tupolev,” he added.

After about 6 months out of service EP-IBD becomes active again.
It will make some test flights but in about one to two weeks it will resume Iran Air flights to Europe.

Here are some pictures of EP-IBD at Iran Air hangar.

very good news, as Iran air tour had 16 tu-154s in their fleet, so they would need a few more planes to top off the 6-7 mds. Irana320, where do you get your info from, just wondering so I can use the links as well to stay in tune. Thanks for your updates!

Found this interesting article with the new CEO of Iran Air (appointed last October)
Iran Air Plans Share Sale to Finance Growth, Fleet Upgrade Amid Sanctions
By Ladane Nasseri - Jul 29, 2010 11:44 PM GMT+0200
Email Share Print
Iran Air, the state-owned flag carrier, plans to sell its first shares to the public and buy as many as 100 new aircraft to expand in the face of tighter international sanctions, the company’s chairman said.

Iran Air is seeking to modernize its aging fleet of foreign-built jetliners, which it operates amid political obstacles to the purchase of new planes and spare parts from European suppliers including Boeing Co. and Airbus SAS, Chairman Farhad Parvaresh said.

“Our company will be going into the Tehran Stock Exchange,” Parvaresh said in his first interview with foreign media since his appointment as head of the company last October. “We are creating the conditions for this. Whether that will be 100 percent, 70 percent, 60 percent, we are working on this.” He said it was too early to give a timeframe for the IPO.

An initial public offering would help Iran Air finance its planned expansion, even as the Persian Gulf country comes under a new round of sanctions over its nuclear activities.

The United Nations Security Council passed a fourth round of sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program in June. President Barack Obama intensified U.S. sanctions against Iran on July 1, targeting foreign suppliers of aviation fuel and other refined oil products and blocking access to the U.S. financial system for banks doing business with the country.

Unit Listings

Homa Hotels, an Iran Air subsidiary, is already listed on the Tehran bourse. Iran Air Tour, another unit, is expected to go public by the end of the Iranian calendar year on March 20, 2011, he said. Parvaresh did not provide a timeframe for Iran Air itself to issue and sell shares to the public.

The Tehran Stock Exchange, home of the world’s second-best performing equity index in the first half of the year, has a total value of 747 trillion Iranian rials ($75 billion).

The European Union tightened trade restrictions on July 26, banning fresh investment in or sales to Iran’s oil and natural gas industries, curbing export-credit guarantees, and monitoring more closely banks that do business in the country.

The U.S. and its allies accuse Iran of pursuing a nuclear weapons capability, an allegation that Iran rejects, insisting that its nuclear program is civilian and needed to provide electricity to a growing population.

“We have had restrictions to get planes but have made efforts and succeeded,” Parvaresh said at his office in Tehran. “We have restrictions to get parts, but have managed. It’s still difficult, but we are making efforts.”

Iran Air’s fleet includes 53 aircraft from Boeing, Airbus and Dutch manufacturer Fokker. The planes are 21 years old on average.

“We are always thinking about buying new planes,” Parvaresh said. “Perhaps we need some 100 aircraft. Boeing and Airbus are making a huge mistake not to use this market.”

The company, founded in 1962, will acquire new planes “whenever we have an opportunity,” he said. “It’s not very easy. Certain conditions need to be met, and when they are, we will buy.”
