Iran, Turkey Mulling over Airline Consortium

Iran plans to form an airline consortium with Turkey as part of its broader plans for boosting cooperation with the airlines of the neighboring states, an Iranian official announced on Tuesday.

Managing-Director of Iran's national air carrier (Iran Air) Farhad Parvaresh told FNA here today that Iran Air and Turkish Airlines have already started talks to form an airline consortium.

"From among all the neighboring and regional airlines, Iran Air has more extensive cooperation with the Turkish Airlines at the present," he said.

"Due to the existence of Islamic states in the region and the necessity of the expansion of air activities and cooperation with the neighboring states, it is necessary for us to form an airline consortium with the Turkish Airlines and other large airlines in the neighboring states in a bid to promote our activities in the region," Parvaresh noted.

He further reminded the high potentials and large capacities existing in the region for air transportation, and hoped for a final agreement with the Turkish Airlines.

Iran and Turkey's national air carriers in June 2010 agreed to boost mutual cooperation in various areas of civil aviation.

Parvaresh told FNA at the time that the two airlines had signed an agreement during a daylong visit to Iran by the Managing Director of the Turkish Airlines to utilize each other's capacities and possibilities.

Parvaresh added that based on the agreement, the two airliners could use each other's capacities to sell ticket for their flights.

He stated that early negotiations were held between the two sides to use empty seats on their flight, considering Iran Air's multiple flights to Turkey and the Turkish Airlines' flights to several cities across Iran.

Iran and Turkey have in recent years boosted their cooperation in different fields of economy, security, trade, education, energy and culture.

Unfortunately a Kish Air Fokker 100 striked a Naft Air Fokker 100.
The Kish Air Pilot made a mistake in this conflict:

they will both fly for Saha.
The second A300 is painted in Saha colours, too:

the logo is a bit different than the other one.


Iran Air now uses A300B4-203 to destination like Cologne or Hamburg because the A320 aren't allowed to fly into the EU anymore.

Hi, does anyone know which routes these saha airbuses are going to be used? Question 2, looking at the mehrabad site one can see that aseman sometimes is flying with an a320, is this the government airbus that is sometimes used on commercial flights or are they leasing one from iran air? Question 3, does anyone know a good place to find yield rates for the airline seats on domestic routes? Would be interesting to see if there is more capacity still needed on domestic flights. Thanks everyone for their updates, its great reading them!!

I think this one is better because it has more seats and the flights from Cologne are always full...

Iranian producers say no to Emirates in-flight screenings

Two Iranian producers have made objections to the illegal screening of their films on the Emirates airline in-flight entertainment.

Manuchehr Mohammadi’s “M for Mother” is currently on the Emirates in-flight movie list and Gholamreza Musavi’s “Red” was previously on it.

“Twilight” and “The Loser”, both directed by Qasem Jafari, are other Iranian films on the list.

“I have recently been informed about screening ‘M for Mother’ by the Emirates airline while neither the airline nor any other related company has a contract with us,” Mohammadi told the Persian service of ISNA on Tuesday.

“The movie is being shown illegally and we have the legal right to pursue this issue,” he added.

He said that he has made arrangements for taking legal action against screening the movie and his attorney is pursuing the issue.

In addition, Mohammadi said that he plans to send a letter to the Emirates airline to ask for an explanation of this matter.

Meanwhile, Gholamreza Musavi said that he has yet received no response to a letter he sent to the Emirates airline office in Tehran about three weeks ago.

He has threatened to ask the attorney of Iran’s Supreme Council of Producers to file a lawsuit against the airline, if he receives no compelling response from the airline’s office.

Just compare it to the entertainment on Iran Air flights..

I think Saha doesn't really know what to do with their Airbuses...
but maybe they will fly the domestic routes which were former oporated by the 707s.
The Airbus A320 from Aseman is the government Airbus, but I can't see any 320 flights from Aseman at the moment... (maybe it was a short period lease)
I don't know any sides for yield rates for the airline seats but I heard one/two years ago the domestic flights from Mahan were only 15-20%full.
But this changed for sure.

Thanks IranA320! Yes I had the same thought about the Sara airbuses, as they are going so long without using them, it seemed for whatever reason not to be a priority

Regarding the Aseman A320, I also have not seen it lately but found it interesting as I kept checking for a couple of weeks and saw it. But you are right, now it seems not to be appearing, but it could be used on a route like mashhad to other domestic site where we would not see it on the mehrebad site.
Yes i would be surprised if Mahan flights are only having 20 percent capacity now, as they are the best domestic airline at the moment for aircraft offerings. Most being wide body aircraft that are newer, nicer, and offering business class. Its interesting I think they try to find routes domestically (like pars asaloyeh) where business people would be flying to use the business offering seats, which is very smart and needed, as they can probably charge much more for these tickets than a normal economy seat.
