According to ATDB (www.aerotransport.org) three ex-United B747-400s are destined for Mahan Air of Iran. The three aircraft are owned by Blue Airways (alias BlueSky), currently registered G-CEFD/CEFE/CEFF, and are reported to be transferred to the Kyrgyz register (EX-).
Mahan Air already operates three A300B2/B4s and one A320 leased from Blue Airways. One A310-300 is currently being refurbished at FJR. All these aircraft are Armenian-registered.
Can anyone confirm that the three B744s are indeed going to Mahan Air?

Former United Airlines B744 N176UA, is registered now G-CEFE for the new UK-based carrier Blue Sky Airlines.
It was rolled out at AMS in late September, following the completion of a D check by KLM Maintenance.
The start up is believed to be linked to Eagle Aviation (of France) and is reported to have its operational base at Beirut, Lebanon.

No indication here concerning Mahan Air, at least for this aircraft.
