CAO Head Steps Down

Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi accepted the Thursday resignation of the head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization, IRNA reported. Alireza Jahangiri’s resignation reportedly comes as MPs have been seeking to impeach the minister over last year’s crash of an Iran-140 Sepahan Air jetliner in the vicinity of Iran’s Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. Jahangiri, who led the CAO for nearly 21 months, holds a PhD from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. Policymaking and planning for the civil air transport, supervision over the safety of air travel and performance of airports and airlines, training of aviation personnel and drafting international agreements are among the responsibilities of CAO.
