No information about the airlines. I think the only airlines operating this Iranian built An-140 was Safiran but they ceased operation, their aircrafts now operated by Iraninan Police (but maybe I'm wrong).
Here is the article.....

The question is whether the accidents in Iran are caused by technical problems or crew errors. The An-140 is a modern aircraft and I assume there are no problems with getting spare parts and support from Antonov.
Note: the article from the second link says that the Iran-140 is originally a Russian design.

The aircraft appears to have belonged to Iran Air Tours and was involved in crew training. This is the third An140 write off in Iran and the 4th overall. It is too bad really. The aircraft is modern, ideal for Iranian domestic flights to secondary airports, and is assembled/ mainitained locally. After the crash landing of an An 140, Safiran stopped operating the type. Iranian Police Aviation took over Safiran's remaining two An 140 and two An 140-100 not yet delivered.
