Wed May 10, 2006 10:03 pm

According to this article in todays Tehran Times, Iran Air is to add eight more planes to its fleet over the next month. Four of which it says will be Airbus built after 2000 and id say probably the other four are F100s.

There has already been so many annoucement in the past 4 years ...
Tupolev 204 ... then MD90, then Airbuses ... and recently again 11 second hand A300/A310 were announced for Iran Air ...

Even if it's an official press release, I will believe it when I will see the aircraft flying in IR's colors !

I really do hope they will be able to get those recent aircraft and many more to rebuilt the fleet they deserve.

4 were added recently :

3 in October 2005 : EP-CFI/J/L
1 last March 2006 : EP-CFL

Before that, 2 were added in January 2005 : EP-CFE/H and 1 in November 2004 : EP-CFD

All those 7 F100 come from TAM Brazil.
They are mostly used on the domestic network.
