Less passenger planes, more flight cancellation in Iran

: "Less passenger planes, more flight cancellation in Iran


LONDON, July 11 (Iran Mania) � Since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year, 6 air routes from Tehran to other Iranian cities have been cancelled due to the insufficient number of passenger planes, Iran Daily reported.

According to the paper, the number of Iran�s passenger planes from 79 last year has decreased to 74 this year. The economic sanctions imposed on Iran and the floating ticket prices are the main reasons behind the chaotic situation of the country�s air fleet.

Iran is currently holding negotiations to purchase second hand Boeings to make up for the shortage. These Boeings are more than 10 years old.
