I guess i'm not quite aware of how sanctions against Iran work, but aint there any possibility for Iran to buy relatively new aircraft using some go-between or leasing companies? I mean there is no big differense in purchasing 20 years old Airbus and 20 years old Tupolev. Those Airbus A320's that are currently operated by several Iranian airlines were purchased directly from the former operators, right? And nobody imposes sanctions against those companies, so they can safely obtain new aircraft from either Airbus or Boeing.

Yeah, but that ain't the way politicians work! As long as there is a way for not spending money, they be willing to take it!

For the safety concerns I will agree...
But I'm glad I got a chance to fly on the Tu-154 when I visited in 2009!

Im waiting for the crashes to carry on despite no Tu154 and for reports of massive shortages in available aircraft because of no Tu154.

Incident: Mahan A313 at Shiraz on Mar 2nd 2011, bird strike


A Mahan Air Airbus A310-300, registration EP-MNP performing flight W5-1088 from Shiraz to Tehran Mehrabad (Iran), was climbing out of Shiraz when the right hand engine (CF6) ingested a bird. The crew needed to shut the engine down and returned to Shiraz for a safe landing about 30 minutes after departure.

If there will be no more changes, MNA will make her test flight tomorrow and will be ferried to Mehrabad afterwards.

Wow so cool, I was just browsing the Turkish website and saw that they have started flights to Shiraz as well. That'd be very great for Shirazis abroad, they can connect to anywhere via Istanbul instead of Tehran or Arabic countries which makes their trip much short.

So as of now Turkish is flying to Tehran, Tabriz, Mashad & Shiraz, if they include Isfahan as well, then they have covered all major cities of Iran

Well, a few days ago there were quite a few Iran Air wide bodies over Belgrade. I was not sure what was that for, and than guess what, I found this news.

Belgrade International Airport is willing to allow refueling for Iran Air EU/Iran bound flights. I think the two countries have good relations. Cheers for Belgrade to see some widebody birds, as well for our Iranian friends.

I don't know why Iran Air has got so many airports for refulling:
Prague, Budapest and now Belgrade... one is enough, isn't it?
