Iran Air Overhauls Foreign Aircraft, Engines: CEO

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The chief executive of Iran’s national flag carrier, Iran Air, said foreign aircraft and engines are repaired by the company.

Shamseddin Farzadipour made the comments in a news conference, adding that Iran Air owes all of its success to the unflinching and relentless efforts of all personnel.

Developing and supplying the domestic air fleet is the main priority of the company, he said, adding that reduced air travel delays and increased satisfaction among passengers are evidence of the success of the company.

He put the number of passengers transported via the air fleet of the company in the current Iranian calendar year (started March 21, 2023) at 753,746.

The CEO of Iran Air also noted that more than 243,000 foreign passengers were transported by the air fleet of the company in the first nine months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2023, to December 22, 2023), registering about 100 percent hike compared to the same period of last year.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Farzadipour said that the air emergency will be commissioned by Iran Air next month.

Back on November 18, the head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) revealed the repair and maintenance of passenger planes from other countries in Iran.

Mohammad Mohammadibakhsh said countries from Latin America, Europe and Asia bring their planes to Iran for repair and maintenance services or send the engines of their planes to the country for overhaul operations.
