Iran Air's fleet order signals serious intent for the Iranian aviation industry

19-Feb-2016 4:05 PM

The initial lifting of sanctions on Iran occurred on 16-Jan-2016 ("Implementation Day"), and major changes are already under way for the country’s aviation industry. The first new Iranian aircraft orders for over three decades have been announced and foreign carriers, most notably European airlines, are hastening to add new routes.

These are just the start of what promises to be a seismic shift for aviation in Iran. During the sanctions period, the country’s aviation authorities, its airlines and even airports adopted a survival mentality.

Now that the sanctions are being rolled back, attitudes are switching to new opportunities for growth and the sector is planning for a brighter future.

Meet the 100 Most Influential People in Iranian Aviation & Travel over Two Historic Days

10-Jan-2016 9:56 PM

The First Vice President of Iran, four Cabinet Ministers and over 20 CEOs of Iranian aviation and tourism companies will headline the delegation attending the CAPA Iran Aviation Summit on 24/25 January in Tehran.

The Iranian delegation comprises the 100 most influential people in Iranian aviation and travel. They will be joined by more than 150 industry leaders from around the world, meeting to discuss the potential of the market in a post-sanctions environment.

This will be the first major international aviation summit to be held in Iran in almost 40 years and has been convened with the full backing of Iran’s aviation authorities and industry leaders.

Western Europe-Iran: opportunity in under-developed market, but Turkish Airlines already has a niche

14-Dec-2015 4:05 PM

Iran accounts for just 5% of Western Europe-Middle East seats, yet it accounts for 24% of the Middle East population. Air travel between Western Europe and Iran fell annually until 2013, since when growth has returned. Nevertheless, it remains under-developed and the thawing of relations with Iran should provide a significant opportunity.

Preliminary 2016 data from OAG indicate that Iran Air's 36% of seats in this market will keep it above Lufthansa's 27%. However, growth by Lufthansa and Austrian, together with the entry of Eurowings, will rank the Lufthansa group ahead with 46%. The other Iranian airline in this market, Mahan Air, is also set to grow rapidly in summer 2016. From the Western European side, the only other operators are Alitalia and Germania.

The potential for the Western Europeans is clear, although it will take time for demand to evolve to levels that are more consistent with the size of Iran's population (second only to Egypt in the Middle East). Moreover, Turkish Airlines has a widespread presence both in Iran and Western Europe and already offers strong competition in the form of one stop services through Istanbul.

CAPA Iran Aviation Summit: The not-to-be-missed event of 2016

4-Oct-2015 9:41 PM

(Tehran, 2 October 2015)  CAPA – Centre for Aviation, the leading global provider of aviation research, data and analysis, is excited to announce a unique global leaders’ summit for 2016, with the launch of the CAPA Iran Aviation Summit which will take place in Tehran on 24-25 January 2016. This will be the first major international aviation summit to be held in Iran in almost 40 years and is provided with the full backing of Iran’s aviation authorities and industry leaders.

As a result of the signing of the historic Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Jul-2015, Iran’s civil aviation sector, and its tourism industry, are set for significant modernisation and expansion following the expected lifting of sanctions in the months ahead. The CAPA Iran Aviation Summit will bring together Iran’s key government and industry leaders with international experts and the chiefs of aviation operators and suppliers from around the world to discuss the direction of the industry in a post-sanctions environment.  

Lifting of sanctions to spur Iran travel. Turkish Airlines & Gulf carriers have large presence

3-Sep-2015 11:00 AM

The lifting of sanctions against Iran will surely produce a flurry of international expansion. Mahan Air, now larger than flag carrier Iran Air, has been growing in China while waiting for European opportunities.

Mahan and Iran Air currently account for about 35% of seat capacity in Iran's international market. Turkish is the largest foreign carrier in Iran with about a 12% share of international seat capacity, followed by Emirates and flydubai with 9% and 6% respectively.

Dubai is already a hub for Iranian business and could further prosper, with resulting benefits to airlines. Dubai is the largest market for Mahan and Iran Air, helping ensure air traffic rights are not a one-sided request. flydubai serves nine cities in Iran, more than any other foreign carrier; Turkish Airlines serves seven and has more favourable geography for connections to Europe and North America. Secondary cities could be important as foreign carriers swamp Tehran.

Iran aviation: the next market for aircraft manufacturers. Can growth be as fast as hoped?

21-Aug-2015 3:48 PM

With a landmark nuclear deal being proposed for Iran, the focus shifts from the immense complexity of reaching an agreement to the implications of it. For aviation, this means Iran's airlines taking new aircraft. The prospect has long been out there but now feels within reach, provided the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is approved by various nations. It may not be until 2016 that business eventuates, although Iran is eager to do deals with Airbus and Boeing to replace its airlines' ageing fleets and to also generate new growth, clawing back at the gains foreign carriers have made in the Iranian market while Iran's local airlines have faced restrictions.

Iran's in-service fleet stands at 215 aircraft in Aug-2015. Iran talks of taking 300 new aircraft within five years and a further 200 in the following five for a total of 500 aircraft within 10 years. The nuclear deal means these numbers are being more closely examined. Iran wants replacement and growth, with its airlines' average fleet age of nearly 25 years making them some of the oldest.
