5 Airbuses join Iran air fleet, 6 more to come

Iranian Roads and Transportation Minister Hamid Behbahani said that 5 Airbuses have joined the air fleet and soon 6 more planes of the type MD will join.

Iran is currently renewing its air transport fleet.

On July 19, the Islamic Republic of Iran News Network quoted the deputy roads and transportation minister as saying it had added 1,330 seats to its air transport fleet during the past 21 days through replacing outdated Tupolev planes with a number of Boeings and Airbuses. Reza Nakhjavani said 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.

Behbahani added that in the next 3 years 4 freeway projects will be completed or finished in the country with the participation of the private sector at an estimated cost of $2.36 billion

China Southern Airlines To Launch Direct Urumqi-Tehran Flights

China Southern Airlines, the country's largest carrier, is scheduled to launch direct flights on the Urumqi to Tehran route on August 29, 2010, increasing the number of flights it operates to Teheran in Iran to five per week.

The new flight, CZ6035, will be operated every Sunday using Boeing 737 or Boeing 757 aircraft. Outbound flights will depart Urumqi at 21:10 and arrive at Mehrabad International Airport at 22:30 local time. Return flights will leave Tehran at 23:30 local time and arrive at Urumqi Diwopu International Airport 07:30 the next day.

The Guangzhou-based carrier launched its Beijing to Tehran via Urumqi route in January 2010: initially with three flights a week.

Although the overhaul of EP-IRS was finished six months ago, here are some pictures of her at Iran Air hangar.

Mahan Air A300-600 EP-MNR has made an emegency landing at Istanbul airport enroute from Dusseldorf (Germany) to Tehran-Imam Khomeini Airport with 209 passengers and 18 crew on board.
The crew noticed an engine fire on the left hand engine. (General Electric CF6)
An other airplane EP-MNO (A310) picked up the passengers.
The A300 is going to be repaired.

http://avherald.com/h?article=4301c69a&opt=1

This is the second problem with Mahan Air A306 after EP-MNU had engine troublem shortly after joining Mahan in January (?).
It's the same problem as the Iran Air A300-600 at Arlanda in January (Engine fire during takeoff)

Well even if they would have the best maintenance these planes are unfortunately old, at least nothing too serious!

Yes but I think there were a lots of problems with GF6 engines as well from other airlines of the world. So I think GE should redesign the engines! The incident of EP-IBB was nearly the same problem as well on the left hand engine.

EP-IAH is not under D-Check. EP-IAG is under D-Check at Fars Co. (Her engines are under repair at Frankfurt).

Since all 747 are banned from flying into the EU, IAH does only Haj flights.
On this side you can see all the flights of planes from Iran and Mahan Air.
(Only not all domestic flights are mentioned).

I think it sounds crazy but it's true !!!
Just one hour later after EP-MNR made the emergency landing,
another A300-600, EP-IBC, (Iran Air Tehran-Stockholm) made a emergency landing at Istanbul Ataturk!!!
I think you can guess the reason already: Engine trouble with General Electric engines!!!
Now two iranian A300 are grounded at Istanbul...
It won't suprise me if all airlines from Iran are banned from flying into the EU.
