Ariana Add Iran

Thu Jul 11, 2002 4:36 am

FG have returned to Tehran after more than 20 years, service was axed after the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. Flights will be operated weekly using the 727. Any update on the ex-Air India A300 delivery to Ariana?

You can check up under www.flyariana.com . Up to now, they don't list either the A300 nor the planned European destination. The only new thing is that they have added a GSA in Fulda east of Frankfurt to their list. -- There were three points, which may lead to some delays: A) on the Indian side it was not clear which A300 are to go and the replacement B) Ariana personnel has to be trained by the Indians C) Kabul-Airport needed further repairs and improvements for the A300 operations . --- The whole re-start of that country of course is a most difficult affair !

Mahan Air according to some reports now flies twice per week from Tehran to Kabul. Tried to check up the matter, but did not find further details. It may even be three times per week now.
