The thing that makes me wonder: is the tail similar to Iran Air's current tail livery? In Iran Air's case, it is blue and has more detail; in this case, it is red...
Nope, this airline was founded in 2010 and is based in northern Iran. They are good with both domestic and international flights.

Ah... I didn't know that myself. When I saw that aircraft on Jetphotos, I thought to myself that I have never seen that airline before, that's why I posted it here. And by the way, is it a privately-owned carrier, or does it have any ties with Iran Air?

It is privately owned. Apart from Iran Air, all other passenger airlines in Iran are privately owned or semi-owned by retirement funds organizations.

Mahan Air says they will use A340 for Bejing flights. (The third A340 has already started operation with Shanghai and Guangzou flights.)

Mahan Air is continuing its network expansion with the introduction of services to Beijing from 28 October and Munich from 12 November 2014. Beijing will be Mahan’s third destination in China which the airline hopes will add to its success in Shanghai and Guangzhou where it has been operating since 2011. The three times weekly flights will be operating via 249 seat Airbus A340 in two class configuration.
Munich will be the airline’s second destination in Germany after Dusseldorf which Mahan has been serving for more than a decade. This attractive city is the driving force behind Germany’s strong economy and has great appeal for leisure and business travelers. The flight will be operated twice weekly on Sundays and Wednesdays and the frequency will be increased to three weekly as of March next year. The flight schedule for both new routes will allow passengers to experience convenient connections via our hub in Tehran to other destinations in Mahan Air route network.
Mahan is one of the fastest growing airlines in the Middle East flying to more than 50 destinations within Iran and points in Europe, Middle East and the Far East. It operates a fleet of 52 jet transports including Boeing 747, Airbus A340/A320/A310/A300 types. It carried more than 5.4 million passengers in 2013.

Mahan to LGW?

Rumour has it, Mahan might start direct flights to London Gatwick... anybody knows more?

The only thing I know so far, is that it appears that way on the Mahan Route map...

Yes, i heard they want to launch twice weekly flights.

As far as I know, IR has three weekly flights to LHR, and does BMI still serve Tehran?

No, unfortunately BMI stopped two or three years ago, at the peak of sanctions, the same time KLM stopped serving IKA.

IR flies three times a week with A300-600, brilliant service but stopover in Ljubljana, which makes you arrive in IKA at 2 or 3 in the morning...

Would be cool if Mahan serves it with A340 though

And actually BMI has been absorbed by BritishAirways, with the exception of regional flights, which are now operated by bmi regional.

Wow! Hope they become a regular! I remember all the flights I've taken DXB-IKA have been nearly, if not completely, full!
