they have the design on paper and groundplans and stuff but they can start it because there is a big need for investement and since Iran can't get it because of sanctions and stuff the project has big delay.

I'm not sure about it, but I think I read once, that the US threatened Mahan Air not to use their 744's and give them back, unless they'll not get spare parts for all of their 747's.

I thought they cant get spare parts anyway and have to get them second hand like from scrapped planes wherever they can or make them. What difference does it make if they use them or not when they are not giving them back?
I thought they couldnt use them internationally incase a friend of the US impounds them.

Wikipedia says:
Quote:
The three 747-400s were according to the English High Court unlawfully taken by Mahan from their real owners in 2008 using forged bills of sale. When ordered to bring the aircraft back to Europe, Mahan apparently claimed they could not do so because they were being investigated by the Iranian authorities for fraud and the aircraft had to be kept in Iran.

To tell the truth, I don't know much about this case. I heard several idea's and don't really know which one is correct. I also heard, that the all Mahan Air planes would be held in any other country to get back the 744's, because they didn't deal correctly. But Mahan Air said the judiciary in Iran would decide about that and until that the planes have to be grounded.
Another idea is, that the US makes pressure on other countries, such as Thailand or Germany to stop flights to their country's airports, if Mahan Air doesn't ground the planes.

But, I am not sure about these ideas at all.
For whatever reason they grounded their 744's, I am quite sure, Mahan Air would do anything to make the planes work again. I mean, it was one of their best planes and with great capacity. They would have used the planes for domestic flights, if they could anyhow.

I didn't read your quote, cause I was writing this post when you edited yours. Okay, then it's clear I think. Thanks for the quote. I didn't guess that in Wikipedia you can find something about this case

Flying "one of everything", these carriers must have a hard time getting parts. Even within the common types there are obvious sub-types and modifications made by the previous owners, which complicates things even more. Maintenance has to be one bloody nightmare.

I think the Germans have a word for what I feel... Schadenfreude.

isnt there anything we can do with complaining about the sanctions on civilian aircraft in iran? I mean even foreigners are flying with the national carriers and will be in the same danger (if any) in the plane as well as people on the ground

I heard in the news that Iran and Egypt will resume flights between these countries for the first time after their relationship weakened in 1979.

Iran Air Tour Airline Starts Replacing Tupolev with Boeing Passenger Planes.

Iran Air Tours, an Iranian airline company, added two Boeing passenger planes to its fleet in line with the country's plan for replacing the Russian Topolov with safer planes.

"Following the Civil Aviation Organization's assistance and support for the continued activity of Iran Air Tour company and the replacement of Topolove-154 planes, the CAO issued the needed license for the operation of two Boeing MDs for the company last week," Director-General of CAO's Office of Flight Engineering Mostafa Haqiqatjou said.

He added that Iran Air Tour has already introduced its plans and time-table for a gradual replacement of its Topolov planes to the CAO.

"The Civil Aviation Organization has brought on its agenda the necessary measures for taking out these planes based on a timetable," Haqiqatjou noted.

In August, Head of Islamic Republic National Airline Farhad Parvaresh announced that all of Iran's Topolov airplanes will be replaced with Boeing MD.

"Within the five months allotted to Iran Air Tour or perhaps by March, another fleet will replace the civilian Topolovs of all airline companies," Parvaresh added.

Also in August, Iranian Minister of Roads and Transportation Hamid Behbahani announced the country's plans to import 13 Boeing MD and six Airbus passenger planes in the near future.

"Five Boeing MD planes (out of 13 planes) have already been imported and the rest of the planes will arrive in the country soon," Behbahani told FNA at the time.

Iran is seeking to renew its air fleet through purchase of foreign planes and domestic production in a bid to improve conditions in its aviation industry.

Iran has witnessed abundant crash incidents in recent years.

Only in 2010, the country witnessed two air crashes. The first incident happened when a Tupolev-154M crashed shortly after take-off from Tehran en route to the Armenian capital of Yerevan on July 15, killing all 168 passengers onboard.

Ten days later, 16 people were killed and 21 others were injured when an Aria Air plane crash-landed in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

The plane en route to the northeastern city of Mashhad from Tehran crashed as it was attempting to make an emergency landing at the destination.

The aircraft, an Ilyushin Il-62 jet, had 153 passengers and crewmembers onboard.

Tehran blames the maintenance woes of its airlines in part on US sanctions that prevent Iran from getting spare parts for some of its planes.

Upgraded version of C-130 aircraft joins air fleet

The upgraded version of the C-130 aircraft joined the air fleet on Sunday in a ceremony attended by defense chief Ahmad Vahidi.


Iran first used the C-130 aircraft in 1970, but the Islamic Republic was not able to upgrade the aircraft since a number of sanctions were imposed on the country and Tehran broke off relations with C-130 factory, Vahidi stated.

Iran’s air industry, in cooperation with the avionic department of the Defense Ministry, has made great efforts to design and manufacture the upgraded version of C-130 airplane, he explained.

The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built originally by Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport aircraft.

Missile delivery failure

Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi also said Iran plans to design a long-range antiaircraft system to be used as an alternative to the Russian S-300 missile system.

At present, a majority of Iranian experts defend developing a long-range antiaircraft system to replace the Russian-made S-300 missile system, Vahidi told reporters.

He went on to say that Russia has tarnished its global reputation as it has announced that it would not deliver the S-300 missile system to Iran.

According to a contract signed in 2005, Russia undertook to deliver S-300 missile system to Iran

Iran, Egypt to Develop Air Transportation Cooperation

An Iranian delegation arrived in Cairo today in a bid to expand mutual cooperation between the two countries in the tourism and air transportation sectors.

Upon arrival at Cairo's international airport, the Iranian delegation was warmly welcomed by Egyptian Transport Minister Alaa El-Deen Mohamed Fahmy.

The two sides are due to hold negotiations on the consolidation of cooperation between Iran and Egypt in tourism and air transportation.

An Egyptian economic activist had earlier announced endorsement of an agreement worth of $1.37bln between his private airline company and Iran's Kish Air Company for the next eight years.

Based on the agreement, the two companies will launch two-way flights between Iran and Egypt in the near future.

The visit by the Iranian delegation is believed to be a prelude to the resumption of ties between the two countries since they broke off official diplomatic relations in 1980. Tehran was critical of Cairo's peace treaty with Israel.

Ties between the two were further strained during the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip in December 2008-January 2009.

Tehran criticized Egypt during the war for its refusal to open the Rafah border-crossing, the only route for the impoverished Gaza Strip to receive aid.

US raps Egypt-Iran resumption of flights

The United States on Thursday criticized an agreement between Egypt and Iran to resume direct flights between their capitals.

"We're aware of the reports that they've signed a memorandum of understanding to resume direct flights," Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman, told reporters.

"And we continue to urge all countries, including Egypt, not to pursue any new business deals until Iran complies with its international obligations," he said, referring to Iran's defiance of UN Security Council resolutions on its nuclear program.

"Given the current atmosphere... we're trying to discourage this kind of engagement with Iran, until it owns up to its international obligations," Toner added.

The agreement signed in Cairo on Sunday provides for 28 flights between Cairo and Tehran per week, but does not specify when flights will resume.

Ties between Tehran and Cairo have been severed since 1980 in the wake of the Islamic revolution in Iran and Egypt's recognition of Israel.

Since then the two countries have maintained only interest sections in each other's capitals

Yes, there are some updates:

First of all an incident of a Iran Air A300-600 (engine problems)

Incident: Iran Air A306 at Vienna on Oct 13th 2010, rejected takeoff

An Iran Air Airbus A300-600, registration EP-IBA performing flight IR-720 from Frankfurt/Main (Germany) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) with 195 passengers and 13 crew, had diverted to Vienna (Austria) for a fuel stop.

About an hour after landing in Vienna the airplane rejected takeoff from Vienna's runway 16 at high speed due to a fire indication for the right hand engine (CF6) and came to a stop about half way down the runway, the left hand main gear tyres deflated. The airplane remained disabled on the runway effectively closing the runway for about 5 hours.

An observer on the ground reported a loud bang from an engine.

The airport reported, that no debris was found on the runway.

The passengers were taken to local hotels and were rebooked onto other Iran Air flights the following day (Oct 14th), that operated to Tehran via a fuel stop in Vienna.

A Thai Air A300-601 is currently under repair at Yerevan(Armenia).
This plane will probably come to Iran soon.
Unfortunately we do not know yet which airline has bought it.

Mahan Air will lease four more BAe 146-300. The planes are probably ex Eurowings/Air Dolomiti aircrafts.

There are some rumors, that Zagros Air will lease two A320.
Lets wait and see....
