NAM Summit In Tehran, Which Airlines?

Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:16 pm

Any idea which carriers will making a one off appearence there for the meeting? some I guess will include Air China, Air India, Air Koryo, Biman, Sri Lankan, Vietnam Airlines, thai, Royal Brunei, Philippine Airlines, Garuda, Royal Jordanian, MEA, Yemenia, Uzbekistan Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Egypt Air. All depending on the delegation visiting and wether they choose to use airline aircraft or military ones or bizjets or possibly even fly commercially.

This picture posted by Al Arabiya on Facebook appears to show Kim Yong Nam of North Korea arriving on an Emirates A332. https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/523227_401123656607419_1160200059_n.jpg

I'm guessing that he flew PEK-DXB-TEH.

Sorry, I was mistaken. One 747 carried the prime minister's delegation, but the rest of the delegation arrived in an A321 due to pilot shortage on the 747 fleet.

The last NAM meeting in Belgrade was held in 1989 and there were so many amazing planes and also some heads of states flying on their own. Late King Hussein of Jordan arrived in Tristar and late PM Rajiv Ghandi arrived in 747.

Compared to those days, it seems that heads of states are downgrading their VIP fleet.

Interestingly Afghan and Tajik leaders used aircraft of private airlines Kam Air 767-200 and Somon Air 737-800 not state own Ariana or Tajik Air.
