Mahan Air Public Statement


Mahan Air denies all allegations made by the US Department of Treasury

Despite the inequitable and unfaircircumstances created by international sanctions against the Islamic Republicof Iran, Mahan Air’s founders and management have strived to overcome thedifficulties in our country’s aviation industry to meet the increasingdemand of our people and the need for the advantages of a strong aviationsector.

Mahan Air is a fully private companybelonging to the Mol-Al-Movahedin Charity Institute, based in Kerman, Iran andit does not belong to any governmental or military bodies or to any politicalparty or individuals. Mahan Air has used its best endeavors to develop thecountry’s aviation industry with the aim of improving the welfare andsafety of its fellow citizens.

Despite the, unfortunate andcatastrophic air casualty losses our country has experienced during the pastdecade Mahan Air has, following its founder’s objectives of enhancing theoverall development of Iran, succeeded in transporting in excess of six millionpassengers annually.

The recently imposed US Department ofTreasury sanctions on Mahan Air designed to exert additional political pressureon the Islamic Republic of Iran will instead have a direct adverse effect onthe safety and security of the people of Iran.

Mahan Air will use all its availableresources to overcome the obstacles being put before it. It will take advicefrom and will seek the support of any competent international body to defendits reputation.

MahanAir will strive to continue its superior services.

Accident: Iran B722 at Tehran on Oct 18th 2011, landed without nose gear


An Iran Air Boeing 727-200, registration EP-IRR performing flight IR-742 from Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) with 94 passengers and 19 crew, was on approach to Tehran's Imam Khomeini Airport around 15:20L (11:50Z) when the crew did not receive a down and locked indication for the nose gear and aborted the approach. Following unsuccessful troubleshooting the crew decided to divert to Tehran's Mehrabad Airport where a low approach confirmed the nose gear was not extended. The crew subsequently performed a landing without the nose gear on runway 29L at about 16:00L (12:30Z) and came to a stand still on both main gear and the nose of the aircraft. The aircraft was evacuated, no injuries occurred.

The runway was closed for about 5.5 hours before the aircraft was moved off the runway.

So who here thought that banning Tu154s was a progressive move? They were not to blame for accidents in Iran as the unabated continuation of incidents shows. What are they going to ban next!? "We announce that we are banning the MD80 series! They are unsafe!" Iran's domestic aviation is unsafe. If all the aircraft flying in Iran were A320 nothing would change!

Iran Studying Use of Qatari Planes for Domestic Flights

Quote:
TEHRAN (FNA)- Managing Director of Iran's national air carrier, Iran Air, Farhad Parvaresh announced that the country is likely to use Qatari planes for domestic flights.


"Based on the cabotage law which has also been approved by the (Islamic Consultative Assembly) parliament, foreign airline companies can run domestic flights in Iran's internal routes," Parvaresh told reporters on Sunday.

He continued saying that based on the cabotage law, the Qataris can also fly in Iran, but under an Iranian company.

And the issue is now under study, he added.

"Of course if any Qatari company wants to run flights under the name of an Iranian airline within the country, it should obey the laws of our domestic airlines," Parvaresh added.

Iran Air is working on plans to expand its ties with regional airlines.

Qatar Airways has requested permission to operate domestic flights in Iran, an aviation official told the FARS News Agency on Sunday.

Farhad Parvaresh, Iran Air's managing director said foreign airlines will be permitted into Iran only if they are willing to work in cooperation with a local company.

He made the remarks in reaction to a request by the Qatar Airlines for permission to conduct flights inside Iran, FARS reported.

Parvaresh said Qatar Airways was keen to take advantage of "high demand for flights in Iran".

Referring to the existing regulations which state that no foreign company is allowed to work in the internal routes of countries, he said the request is yet to be considered, FARS added.

Any deal would see Qatar Airways operate a code-share arrangement with Iranian airlines to comply with laws excluding non-Iranian companies from domestic routes.

Sanctions-hit Iran is taking the unprecedented step of allowing a foreign airline, Qatar Airways, to ply its domestic routes, an Iranian official told the Isna news agency yesterday.

"The agreements have been done and the time of implementation of this agreement will be announced by the Roads and Urban Development Ministry," the deputy minister in that ministry tasked with transport, Shahriar Afandizadeh, was quoted as saying by the agency.

The deal would see Qatar Airways operate a code-share arrangement with Iranian airlines to comply with laws excluding non-Iranian companies from domestic routes, the CEO of flag-carrier Iran Air, Farhad Parvaresh, said.

Qatar Airways to add 31 flights on Iran routes

Qatar Airways said on Monday it will add 31 weekly flights to Iran, more than doubling frequencies, as the second-biggest Arab carrier taps demand that the Islamic republic’s own operators are struggling to meet because of Western sanctions.

State-owned Qatar Air will increase services to 52 a week in a four-month ramp up starting December 1 while adding a fourth destination, Isfahan, to the network, it said in a statement.

The Gulf company may also offer domestic services under a code-sharing agreement with Iranian carriers.

“We have been working with the authorities in Iran for increased capacity across the country,” CEO Akbar Al Baker said in the statement.

The new services will aim to meet the travel demands of the Iranian expatriate community via Qatar Air’s international network based on Doha, he said.

Iran’s own ability to add and upgrade planes has been stymied by United Nations sanctions imposed over its nuclear program that block purchases from Boeing and Airbus.

Qatar Airways already has orders for more than 200 jets worth in excess of $40bn and will announce a further contract at the Dubai air show next month, Al Baker said October 6 in Oslo.

Qatar Air began serving Iran in 2004 with flights to Tehran, followed by Mashhad and then Shiraz. New services will be operated by Airbus A320 jets with business and economy seats.

A further accord has been struck allowing Qatar to operate domestic trips, according to the state-run Iranian Students News Agency, which cited comments from Shahriar Afandizadeh, the country’s deputy minister for roads and urban development.

Under the deal, Qatar Air would operate code-share flights with Iranian operators in order to comply with laws excluding foreign companies from domestic routes, Iran Air CEO Farhad Parvaresh told the news agency.

AN IRANIAN pilot whose courageous emergency landing saved 113 lives has been suspended from flying.

A video posted on YouTube captured the moment Hooshang Shahbazi was forced to land his Iran Air Boeing 727 on just its rear wheels after the plane's front landing gear jammed during the approach into Tehran.

Mr Shahbazi kept the nose of the aircraft off the ground as the flight from Moscow, with 94 passengers and 19 crew members on board, sped down the runway at Tehran's Mehrabad International Airport until it came to a safe halt.

But though the passengers applauded as they disembarked, the authorities were less eager to publicise the incident, which again drew attention to Iran's appalling air safety record and the deteriorating condition of its fleet of passenger aircraft due to international sanctions.

The Fars news agency hailed Mr Shahbazi as "a genius" before reporting that he was grounded for two months, pending an investigation.

The pilot himself expressed bewilderment at the authorities' response over the weekend.

"They have not even called to say thank you," he told reformist newspaper Etemaad.

Most startling was the pilot's disclosure that, faced with imminent disaster when the landing gear failed, he diverted to Mehrabad from Tehran's main international airport, Imam Khomeini, fearing that a crash would block the only runway and cause severe embarrassment to the regime.

"That would have been a disaster, also politically," he said.

In remarks that will not have endeared him to his employers, Mr Shahbazi noted the contrast of Iran's silence after this incident with the public acclaim for American pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who safely landed an Airbus A320 on New York's Hudson River in 2009, saving the lives of all 155 on board after the plane was struck by a flock of birds.

Mr Shahbazi said he did not desire heroic status, merely a thank you for his colleagues and himself.
