Airbus contributes 2 planes to Iran’s air fleet

TEHRAN, Nov. 17 (MNA) – Head of the Kish Free Zone has said since Iran-Airbus negotiations in Paris, the giant has contributed 2 Airbus A321s to Iranian air fleet.

Ali Asghar Mounesan who was speaking to the press on the sidelines of the 8th International Iran Air Show in Kish Island on Thursday, said that the air giant would also improve Kish Air fleet age by contributing another 2 planes later; “the Airbuses are manufactured in 2007, which are relatively young and will improve the performance of the airline; we plan to add another 10 planes to increase the fleet to 20 planes, which includes 7 Boeing McDonnell Douglas planes and 3 Fokker 100,” he detailed.

He told reporters that purchase of brand new aircrafts would be awaited due to financial reasons; “new aircrafts entail huge logistics and preparation in terms of repair and maintenance and operation, which should be economically justified and profitable; we are working on construction of a passenger terminal with a capacity of handling 4.5 million passengers annually, with special runway for Airbus A380 double-deck luxury planes,” Mounesan said.
