Iran Aseman Airlines is set to lease seven A320neo from an undisclosed Irish firm following the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization and the Irish Aviation Authority in Tehran last week. According to a CAO statement issued after the signing ceremony, the agreement will see the IAA help extend technical expertise and assistance in the areas of flight operations management, airworthiness and aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul to Iranian counterparts.  Once ratified, it will also simplify the means by which Iranian carriers can lease aircraft from Irish lessors by improving Iran’s air safety oversight procedures, Switzerland-based airline intelligence provider Ch-aviation reported. Reza Jafarzadeh, an official with CAO, said Iran Aseman Airlines would be one of the country’s first airlines to benefit from the deal whose specific details were not disclosed. Iran Aseman Airlines’ fleet consists of three A320-200s, one A340-300, four ATR72-200s, two ATR72-500s, three B727-200s, one B727-200(F), two B737-400s, and nineteen Fokker 100s.
