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.

Iran aviation: lifting of sanctions could breathe life into the ageing fleets of Iran's airlines

27-Mar-2014 9:35 PM

The embargo on aircraft and parts exports to Iran has left the Iranian airlines saddled with not only some of the oldest fleets in the Middle East, but in the world - a contributing factor to the dreadful safety record of the country's aviation system over the past 20 years.

While Iran has attempted to kick start its own commercial aviation manufacturing industry and has also sourced aircraft from Russia and Ukraine, its efforts to acquire Western-made aircraft and replacement parts have largely been frustrated, thanks to the effects of sanctions imposed by many countries.

But as a result of Iran's agreement in Nov-2013 to suspend nuclear activities, several countries including the US and France and Germany have agreed to a temporary 6 month suspension of restrictions on sale of spare parts for aircraft and engines, in order to help improve safety levels. The window for sales began in Jan-2014. Boeing and General Electric are reportedly among manufacturers who have applied to use the opportunity to provide spare parts.

UK’s Newcastle and Cardiff airports seek long haul flights

7-Jun-2010 11:52 AM

Once it was short haul services that were in demand from UK’s regional airports, now it seems that the desire to avoid travelling via a hub has spread to the mid to long haul arena, as difficult as it may be to justify some of the proposed services. The latest airports to investigate the level of demand for long haul flights are Newcastle and Cardiff.

Iraq taking control of more of its airspace

13-Jan-2009 11:22 AM

Like the rest of the country, Iraq’s aviation industry is now beginning to recover from the travails of the country’s recent history. In a sign of the increasing responsibility that Baghdad is taking of its national aviation industry, Iraq officially took control of more of its airspace in early 2009. All Iraqi airspace, except for ATS routes and Terminal Control Areas, is prohibited to civilian traffic, unless under the direction of Air Traffic Control (ATC).
