I dont think it feasable for Iran to ban the Tu154. The need for aircraft is too great and supply is badly limited. Barely a month goes by when another aircraft is put out of action by some accident. It wasnt proposed out of genuine particular safety concerns anyway. It was just a scapegoat for an entire airline industry thats a safety concern. They have already been putting back the ban and will probably try to dispense with it quietly.

Whats the problem? 20 years is not really that old. Most Iranian aircraft are a similar age or older.

Yes, but I thought they want to renew the airfleets??? Buying more old aircraft can't be be the right step to make Iran's aviation safer.

Iran will need to keep the old Russian TU-154 aircraft's flying as all the aircraft's Iran is getting as already stated are old, and most have issues, and those that don't will develop some issue as to age, and lack of getting spare parts as to restrictions placed on the Iranian Government.

They have no choice. They have to source whatever aircraft are available to them. Preferably of types that engineers in the country have experience with i.e. F100, A310/A300, A320, B747, MD80 etc. They cant buy new stuff anymore. Not even from Russia.

A Boeing 747SR EK-74711 landed at Tehran Mehrabad airport.
I am not sure if Mahan Air bought this plane only for spare parts or if they want to use it for passengers...
Lets see... :-)

If it will be painted, then in Mahan Air colours. ( It is a cargo aircraft, may be Mahan will use it for charter cargo operations.

The tail of one MD-82 is already painted in Iran Air Tours colours!
The airplane is UR-BXL which was dedicated for Iran Air. But it is transferred to Iran Air Tours.

First flight: 01/06/1989
Originally delivered to China Northern Airlines as B-2128.

Why does Mahan Air not operate the 747-400s domestically to avoid them sitting idle? Im sure they could be filled between THR and MHD or on some other trunk routes.

President Ahmadinejad leaves Mehrabad for a three-nation trip to Syria, Algeria and US.
The aircraft used in this trip is Iran Air Boeing 747SP-86, EP-IAC.
