Iran has rescheduled their BEG flights for 27.01. Initially they were supposed to start on 13.01

They will operate twice a week and will mostly carry Iranian tourists visiting Serbia. Qeshm Air will also launch their own two weekly flights starting from 01.02. Mahan Air will also operate a one off charter in March onboard their A310.

Tehran IKA airport has nearly finished constructing a new ramp. This will help cope with increased demand at the airport. Many airlines have returned to the airport, as a result of the nuclear deal.

On January 18th, Iran Air operated a one off flight from Tehran Mehrabad to Kalaleh, with ATR 72. Likely to become a regular service soon. Kalaleh is in the north of Iran and has a population of 130 000. Huge potential to become a great route for IR. ATR aircraft clearly helping IR expand.

Any Deliveries of A330 or A321 in 2018?

How is Austrian Airlines doing in Esfahan and Shiraz? I think I read somewhere that they linked the two cities. I guess it's a challenge to fill the plane in winter.

Definitely not A330. A321 is a possibility.

Why no A330? Are all the production blocks full for the A330 in 2018?

The B777 looks stunning in IR colours. I do wonder if they really have the need for it. I mean, the A330 is probably the perfect aircraft for them. It could make sense if they ever launch flights to the US, Canada or even Australia.

Iran Air is eyeing to launch flights to Australia and resume Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Beijing and etc. these B777's will most likely being used on the LHR route as well.

IR has 15 B777ER's on order and 15 B777X planes, next to 16 A350-1000, 28 A330NEO plus 8 A330-200's

If IR does keep on expanding like this then it will be a major blow to airlines such as EK, QR, TK...

Good for IR though.

It will take years for IR to develop into a major carrier - More important, Iran should invest billions of USD in airport infrastructure first.

I've tried to modify the current A300 paint in the newer billboard livery and looks decent IMHO.

Not too bad. Iran air is in my opinion really in need of a new livery, but the billboard livery is a least a step in the right direction.

Iran Air's livery (billboard) is timeless, iconic and classy. More importantly it goes well on both narrow body aircraft types like ATR's, A320's as well as wide body aircraft.

De gustibus non est disputandum, but it's just too much white for my taste. There is probably no need to go for a new design, but an update would be nice. The lines on the fuselage of the ATR's are a big improvement, but there are probably more things that can be done.

The ATRs are the most important piece of the fleet at the moment. Iran is a pretty large country and there is a solid need for good domestic travel. Incoming A320 family aircraft will be a big part of this too.

Get the basics in place as they are doing, and operating those 773ERs will fit nicely with the A330s.

The Ceo of Iran Air has said that flights to Sydney, Adelaide, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur will be launched with the 777's.

That's why the ATRs are so important. Good feed to the Tehran hub to service the longhaul aircraft.

The same goes for people coming into Iran, who can then connect to their final destination easily. ATRs are great feeder planes.

Adelaide? There is a Afghan community there but nothing substantial, I would've thought Melbourne over Adelaide considering it has for one a sizable Iranian/Persian community and a larger Afghan community also

I might be wrong but I think the Atr is used mostly on domestic flights within Iran, not so much from Tehran. I read that some previously inactive airports got flights now thanks to the aircraft. It seems it's a perfect fit for IR.

Of course the flight is not full, but sometimes brings a huge amount of transfer pax to North American destinations.

One interesting question maybe to persiangulf93 and others who more in theme,

Is really 727 of Iran Aseman still in commercial passenger service? There is no chances to get this information from outside, there are lot of rumors in topics related to 727, but on one confirmed definitely by fact, eg last flight number and etc.

Please kindly provide some info.

They are still in service. Aseman uses them on domestic routes from Tehran to various cities, such as Ahwaz and Mashhad.

I just found an article showing more Iran Air plans for the 777. Tokyo-Narita and Beijing services are set to be resumed, once the 777 begins to be delivered. New route to Toronto is also going to be established. Aircraft configuration will be 352 economy seats and 35 Homa seats (business class), totalling 387 seats.The new business class will be different to the current A330 seats. https://airlinegeeks.com/2018/02/09/ira ... ew-routes/

I saw the news about potential flights to Toronto and I find it doubtful. Canada and Iran do not have diplomatic relations for several years now. Also, previous attempts to serve YYZ in the late 1990s were blocked by the Americans as the certain landing patterns would cross or come close to the US border.

Mahan Air will be introducing charter flights from IKA to BEG starting from 06.04. Flights will operate until the end of the summer season. Mahan will use the A310.

On top of that, Qeshm and Iran Air will both operate their own two weekly flights.

Ms. Sharafbafi mentioned that they want to start flights to Australia in the future with their 777. Makes sense given the recent agreement signed between the two, and the large Iranian diaspora community in Australia. Not only that, they can extend the flight to AKL and tap into the NZ market too. I'm optimistic about Iran Air's future as a solid competitor to SV and KU in the Europe-Asia connection market, as well as being a viable option for tourists coming to Iran.

Personally I think Trudeau might use seasonal charters from YYZ to IKA as a form of rapprochement with Iran. Also, FedEx regularly flies over Iran, so Iran could threaten to close that corridor to US airplanes if the US tries to block a Toronto route.

I'd like to see Iran Air refurbish their A300s, A310s, and A320s with the new livery, newer seats, and IFE to appeal to travelers living abroad during the interim before they can modernize their whole fleet.

I just found an article showing more Iran Air plans for the 777. Tokyo-Narita and Beijing services are set to be resumed, once the 777 begins to be delivered. New route to Toronto is also going to be established. Aircraft configuration will be 352 economy seats and 35 Homa seats (business class), totalling 387 seats.The new business class will be different to the current A330 seats. https://airlinegeeks.com/2018/02/09/ira ... ew-routes/


I saw the news about potential flights to Toronto and I find it doubtful. Canada and Iran do not have diplomatic relations for several years now. Also, previous attempts to serve YYZ in the late 1990s were blocked by the Americans as the certain landing patterns would cross or come close to the US border.

Personally I think Trudeau might use seasonal charters from YYZ to IKA as a form of rapprochement with Iran. Also, FedEx regularly flies over Iran, so Iran could threaten to close that corridor to US airplanes if the US tries to block a Toronto route.


Trudeau has been given his marching orders by the Saudi's. The sale of 15 billion dollars worth of armed/armored vehicles, (but they won't be used to do bad things....honest), is much more important to him than any rapprochement with Iran.

Too bad since BBD could sure use a market for the CSeries, CRJ's and Q's.
What the...?

The ATRs are the most important piece of the fleet at the moment. Iran is a pretty large country and there is a solid need for good domestic travel. Incoming A320 family aircraft will be a big part of this too.

Get the basics in place as they are doing, and operating those 773ERs will fit nicely with the A330s.

The Ceo of Iran Air has said that flights to Sydney, Adelaide, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur will be launched with the 777's.


Adelaide? There is a Afghan community there but nothing substantial, I would've thought Melbourne over Adelaide considering it has for one a sizable Iranian/Persian community and a larger Afghan community also

Connecting traffic from KBL? A mix of A320/ATR 72 aircraft from IKA to KBL could make an easy connecting route. Since options out of KBL are limited, Iran Air could easily compete with EK by offering cheaper flights.

Has IR grown its short-haul fleet since the first A321 joined the fleet?

"not the Short Haul but rather regionals have been expanded with the 8 ATRs, the ninth was pictured in AA, on the verge of delivery?"
