Iran Asseman Airlines - Why The Name Change?

Tue Jan 03, 2006 12:38 pm

Iran Aseman Airlines used to be known as Iran Asseman Airlines, until they changed their name in (I think) the mid-90's.

Why did they changed their name? For obvious reasons? Maybe they got Seinfeld in Iran and someone figured it out?

It likely has to do with the translation from Farsi/Persian script into Western script? Aseman in Farsi/Persian means Sky.
