It looks like Iran Air has recently launched a Facebook page:

https://www.register.facebook.com/pages/Iran-Air/105643126134787

Isn't Facebook banned in Iran...?

Believe it's banned in North Korea (and even if it isn't, people don't really have access to the Internet) and don't Air Koryo have a page?

It's more to do with those coming to Iran rather than those in Iran, I would imagine.

We manage to get facebook when using the hotel Wifi when we layover in Tehran. However, Facebook is off limits when we try and access it in Syria.

The hotels in Iran tend to be a little more liberal as they also show some cable channels such as BBC World News, Eurosport etc, which otherwise are technically illegal in Iran.

Given that Facebook is generally banned in Iran, Iran Air's decision to launch a Facebook page seems to be at odds with the Iranian governments internet policy...On one hand Facebook is banned on moral grounds, yet at the same time is embraced by the Iranian National Flag Carrier... I am not judging, I am simply pointing out that there is an inconsistency in the "Facebook policy".

Give me a break...

Anyone can create a Facebook page. Creating a facebook page does not have to get Government approval. Iran's ban on facebook or whatever websites does not reflect the views of Iran Air.

Isn't it a government owned airline?

Are you not aware that Iran Air is a government owned airline?

Seriously, do you not realise that Iran Air haven't created the page in your link? It's nothing to do with them, what you link to is the standard FB reconstituted Wiki feed, although there has been a much better Iran Air fan page on there for ages, just like practically every airline out there.

By the way, I created the fan page of Qatar Airways in Facebook. lol I dont work for the airline, nor did I before. Anyone can create a facebook page. It does not have to do with the government.

If Iran Air didn't make the facebook page, then it's a violation of their copyright, and in that sense it has everything to do with the government.

Oh please, do you really think they are going to care?

A violation of their copyright? In what sense? They are having a fan page, which is not in violation of anything.

Type Justin Beiber and see how many pages you get. I bet Justin is too busy dating with his new haircut to start all these fan pages himself. A violation of copyright in North America? Oh, no! It couldn't be!

I'm pretty sure the last time I checked Justin Beiber is an individual not a registered business unless he trademarks his own name I'm pretty sure his record company or himself can't do anything about it. What is he going to do sue all the other Justin Beiber's who are unfortunate enough to share his name?

Im not talking about people with identical names. Im talking about people who create a Beiber page with his pictures profile.
