According to the CIA factbook: 305 (127 with paved runways). The ones in the bigger cities are international.

Ease On Air, Iran’s first budget airline established

TEHRAN, Jan. 7 (MNA) -– Iran’s first budget airline established by the private sector will launch its flights soon.

“Employing a group of veteran experts who have worked in the managerial posts of some of the private sector-run airlines and, utilizing the most up-to-date management approaches which would result in boosting the safety, enhancing the quality and reducing the costs of the air travels, Ease On Air intends to reach a wider spectrum of people”, the newly registered airline company said in its statement.

In accordance with the guidelines drawn up by the World Trade Organization (WTO), the founders of the budget airline will try to achieve two main objectives; decent and qualitative services with the lowest possible costs, the statement added.

Like many other low-cost airlines, by dropping a number of services to its passengers, Ease On Air would significantly reduce its ticket fairs. Omitting snacks and making use of multi-skilled flight crew as well as economical airliners would be the measures to be taken to that end.

The airline will be launching services with a fleet of 181-seater Boeing 737s, however, it is said that its negotiations with Fokker on the purchase of a number of Fokker-100s have run into rough weather, the airline had said in its earlier announcements.

END

Tehran, 8 January 2006 -- Izan Air, the first low cost airline company, has received permit from the Civil Aviation Organization of Iran for launching low cost flights which will be in service by June 2006.

Following the agreement of the Civil Aviation Organization of Iran for establishing the first low cost airline in Iran, the authorities of Izan Air Company are determined to buy or rent some airplanes to start their work.

“Boeing 300/400/737 aircrafts are the most common airplanes used by low cost airliners. Regarding the relatively low average age of these airplanes which is mostly 10 to 12 years, they are not included in the U.S. sanctions,” said Hashem Afsarian, director general of Izan Air Company to CHN correspondent.

Establishing low cost airline companies will reduce the air traffic of domestic flights. The main aim of such companies is to provide acceptable low cost facilities to the passengers so that they would prefer to use these services more often.

It is estimated that the first low cost airline company in Iran would sell tickets with a 10 percent discount compared to other airlines in the country. According to Afsarian, the company will start its work with three airplanes and intends to raise this number to five within one year.

At first, most of the flights will be done from low traffic airports of Iran such as Asalouye and Tabriz. It is estimated that the company would transport one million passengers in its first year, a number which would reach to 3 million within 5 years.

Purchasing of 300, 400, and 700 Boeing aircrafts costs 10 to 14 million U.S. dollars each; and the Iranian banks would provide support and assistance to finance in this regard.

In most countries, low cost airlines have been in use for over 60 years. At present, 23 percent of European and 45 percent of American passengers travel with these airlines and a large number of Asian flights are being carried out by low cost airline companies.

How sad we have to buy 2nd hand. Air Bus isn't bad but Tupolev sucks.

Arak Airport’s first intl. flight lands in Syria
TEHRAN, Sept. 3 (MNA) – The first international flight of Arak Airport, Markazi Province, left Iran for Syria on Saturday evening.

In addition to the ordinary people, a number of officials were also aboard the plane to attend the Syrian international fair to exhibit the capabilities of Markazi Province.

During the inauguration ceremony, Abdullah Sohrabi, the governor general of Markazi Province said that it has been one of the demands of both provincial inhabitants and President Mahmud Ahmadinejad to launch the international flights of the airport, which was eventually realized following a relevant ratification of the Cabinet.

Pointing to the fact that there are economic reasons behind the necessity of the existence of an airport in Arak, Sohrabi said that the license for air traffic use was granted to Arak Airport after intensive endeavors.

Elsewhere in the ceremony, the official in charge of Arak Airport, Hamid-Reza Khosrojerdi said that during the past six months, some 108 domestic flights have been made to and from Arak Airport.

Arak Airport was eventually inaugurated last winter after about seven years of delay, and was greatly welcomed by the people.

Iran, US Cooperate in Repairing Airbus Engines

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Head of Aviation Organization said that Iran and the United States will cooperate to repair the engines of Iran's troubled Airbus passenger plane fleet in the near future.

Speaking to FNA's economic desk, Niaraki described the US decision for repairing Iran's planes as a positive move, and stated, "Given the fact that a number of the Airbus 310s of Iran's navigation fleet are in need of engine repairs, we will take the required measures to start cooperation with the US aviation organization to fix them."

The official said that Iran's Aviation Organization will soon be contacted by the US party in this regard.

The US Secretary of State in a statement released on Tuesday announced that the US treasury has issued the required permissions for the supply of the spare parts needed by Iran's passenger planes.

I guess we should have some images of our aircraft then... I'll keep it civil for now

Iran Air:

"Iranian Airways" was first established in May 1944 and commenced its first passenger flight right after the World War II from Tehran to holy city of Mashhad. Within a period of 17 years (1945-1962) this airline developed into a major domestic Route with a few international flights per week. In 1954 another private airline as "Pars Airways" was established. Initially "Pars Airways" only undertook freight services to Europe.


The geographical situation of Iran, expanding its spacious levels, relative remoteness of crowded areas from each other, lack of means of transportations either railways or roads, the need to initiate safe and fast connections to survey and governmental organizations, and the last but not the least, lack of an ordered equipment with high capacity to revive mutual aviation rights with other countries and also securing more welfare and comfort for Iranians, provided the conditions for the board of ministers to ratify a proposal suggested by road minister to establish a national Airline corporate on February 10th, 1961. Following this decision, on February 24th, 1961 both "Iranian Airways" and "Pars Airways" merged to form a new airline as" IranAir" with the acronyms and the symbol of "HOMA" bird and this new airline commenced its activities in April 1962.

Covering the domestic aviation transportation needs accompanied by observing the safety principles and forming transportation services with neighboring and far-fetched countries, and also considering simultaneous communal contracts on commercial grounds and interests of the country were among the reasons to establish IranAir.

Fleet:

The Iran Air fleet consists of the following aircraft (at December 2005):

* 4 Airbus A300-600R
* 4 Airbus A300B2
* 2 Airbus A300B4
* 6 Airbus A310-200
* 2 Airbus A310-300
* 4 Boeing 727-286
* 1 Boeing 737-200
* 1 Boeing 747-186B
* 2 Boeing 747-286B
* 1 Boeing 747SP-86
* 12 Fokker 100

U.S. consents to overhauling Iranian airliners
TEHRAN, Oct. 4 (MNA) – The United States consent to overhauling Iranian airliners is the result of the measures taken by Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) session recently held in Montreal, noted here on Wednesday Nurollah Rezaii Niaraki, chief executive officer of Iran’s CAO.

During the session of the ICAO assembly recently held in Montreal, Iranian officials complained to the international body about Washington's sanctions on Iran, in particular Iran’s air transportation, Rezaii Niaraki said adding that the chairman of the international organization agreed to discuss the problems with the related U.S. officials. “The ICAO authorities promised to solve the case," Niaraki told the Persian service of Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reported.

Air accidents are frequent in Iran, where most passenger planes are 16 years old, on average. The country's 13 carriers have tried to upgrade their fleets with European aircraft, but the U.S. has pressured Europe not to sell. Nearly 30 people died in September when a Russian-made Tupolev-154 caught fire on landing in northeastern Iran.

Western nations have offered to sell Iran new planes and spare parts as part of an incentive package aimed at getting Tehran to roll back its nuclear program. Iran says its nuclear activities are to generate fuel, not weapons, and it refuses to give up the program.

Iranian state-run radio said Wednesday that the United States had agreed to allow Iranian Airbus models to be repaired in a third country, but it did not specify where, Associated Press quoted Iranian radio on Wednesday.

The country's main carrier, Iran Air, has seven Tupolevs in its 43-plane fleet. It also has seven Boeings bought before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and 28 European Airbus and Fokker aircraft.

"Iran Air tour" will buy 5 new 'death traps' from Russia lol

The Iranian airline company, Iran Air Tour is planning to purchase five Tu-204 passenger airplanes from Russia, the Persian service of IRNA said. The contract, worth some 180 million dollars, is due to be signed before December 15, with the airplanes to be supplied starting in 2008.

Speaking with IRNA, an airline official refrained from comments about the causes of the September 1 crash of a Tu-154 Tupolev in Mashad Airport. The accident claimed the lives of twenty eight passengers and crew members.
