Mahan A320

I was checking the database and apparently Mahan Air has at least two A320s. How did they acquire them and why isn't Iran Air able to get them? Which routes do they operate the A320s?

Here's one in Dubai...

Both aircraft (EP-MHJ and EP-MHK) are leased from Dusseldorf-based airline (Blue Wings QW/BWG). There have been rumors for some time that QW might also lease some A330-200 to either Iran Air or Mahan Air.
