Following the big order from Iran for Tupolev Tu-204 and 214, it seems these aircrafts will be built in Iran.
Sorry,in Russian only (translation welcome).

This is wonderful news for the Iranian aviation industry and the Iranian flying public. I hope that addition of the new planes will allow retiring of the ancient Boeings and geriatric Airbuses.

This has been talked about for a while, nothing firm yet just speculation at the moment.

Sibille, you have still not improved your russian ?

A russian delegation was in Iran and discussed sale of 100 Tu-204/214 over the next 10 years.
According to the arcticle:
A final contract could be signed in Moscow in May.
Idea is that the first 5 to 7 a/c will be delivered from Russia complete, in parallel about 25 green a/c could be delivered to Iran for completion, the rest to be assembled locally from russian parts.
Concrete numbers of finished, green, assembled from big parts, assembled from small parts seem to be still under discussion.
Big / small parts probably relates to the degree of local iranian production.

However even russian specialists doubt the ability of the iranian side to master such an ambitious project. The article mentioned the IrAN-140 only in this respect. In 1995 a contract was made about the licence production of 100 AN-140, but in the last 13 years the factory in Isfahan just managed to turn out three of them...

KOGGE.
Thanks again for the translation. Should work together to bring rusian news on this forum. I spend a lot of time on the net, trying to find the last news about Russian aviation but it's not so easy to find real news and to find someone to translate. Aviastar website is cureently unavaible, Tupolev website add last news every 6 months  zzz  ......
Russian aviation wolrd is wonderfull but made of too many "perhaps".

This is very interesting.

Setting up a production line in Iran could not possibly because the one(s) in Russia is/are full though, given the production statistics quoted recently claiming that roughly one Tu-204 per month would be built over the next year.

Just curious is Iran Air still considering ordering IL96-400'S to replace their widebody fleet?

I haven't heard anything new on this. Given the fact that the US sanctions are not going away, the IL96s would be the only choice available. Iranians, particularly the people who run Iran Air, will do just about anything to only have "Western" aircraft. The whole point of developing Iran Air Tours was to let them operate Soviet/Russian aircraft on IR's network (Yak 42D and Tu154M, without "contaminating" their main fleet. I believe that if the leadership had put their prejeduices aside, IR would have had Tu-334 (to augment and eventually repalce F100s), Tu204/214 (to replace B707,B727 and B737), IL96-300 (to replace A300B2/B4) and IL96-400 (to replace B747s). Instead, they have retired the B707, B727-100, B737-200 and B747-200F and have added some old A300B4, B747-200 and F100s.

Iran Air tour was set up actualy before the revelotion, but your right in suggesting that they didnt want Russian equipment on thier fleet. Also until recently the quality of equipment coming out of Russia was inferior to even the old equipment IR was flying, so I dont think they had much of a choice either.

I think the difference is range and max gross weight. The Tu214 being long range or at least longer range in comparisson to the Tu204.

I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

Quoting PlanenutzTB (Reply 13):

Yes, there is. All sorts of things are done domestically in Iran. Keeping American and European built civilian and military aircraft maintained despite nearly three decades of American sanctions is a major achievement. HESA is building the An140 under license, albeit the program has had lots of fits and starts. Several helicopters and fighter aircraft have been developed based on reverse engineering. Multiple UAVs and missiles have been locally created. In some ways, The Iranian aerospace industry is similar in its evolution to the Chinese (PRC) one. How knows, we might even see an Iranian "ARJ-21" someday.

I see that on Wikipedia(i know unreliable) Iran air officials will be travelling to Australia in June
in the hope of starting services to Sydney via Kuala Lumpur , in 2009/10 if successful. Why would IR even
consider SYD, & with what aircraft would they operate such a route if ever were to happen?

Quoting SIBILLE (Thread starter):
Why would IR even
consider SYD

There is a significant population of Iranian expatriates in Australia and New Zealand. The population is centered mostly around SYD.

IR flies to KUL using B747 Classics, both the 100B/200s and the SPs. SYD is intended to be an add on to KUL.

IR has been trying to fly to YUL and YYZ to serve the HUGE Iranian population in North America. US pressure on Canada has been the major obstacle.

I thought they can buy Airbus aircraft. The European Union are major trade partners, unless some parts are American made.

If they are granted rights between SYD and KUL, that will certainly make an interesting alternative.

I know that due to the sanction, IR or any other airlines in Iran can not purchase airbus or Boeing birds, but what about leasing? Any restrictions on those? Cant IR lease 777's or A345's?
