Iran adds 40 planes to passenger fleet in year to March: Official

The managing director of Iran's Airports and Air Navigation Company says that 40 planes were added to the country’s aviation fleet during the past Iranian calendar year (ending on March 20).

Hamid Reza Seyyedi told IRNA in an interview on Saturday that airports, runways and terminals in Iran should be equipped with new facilities in a way that corresponds to the development needs of airlines in the country.

The official noted that both the state and the private sector in Iran have been trying to import airplanes to expand the country’s passenger fleet despite the fact that the Iranian aviation industry has been under sanctions for four decades.

He said that technicians and experts have managed to keep the national aviation industry alive and strong.

Seyyedi said that the number of flights during the Nowruz holidays, which mark the start of the Iranian New Year, had increased by 20% compared to the two weeks to April 2, 2022.
