Fleet

Due to the sanctions imposed by the US, Iranian airlines can only acquire aircraft which are at least seven years old and have been purchased through a third party rather than directly from Boeing or Airbus.

Three 747-400s were according to the British High Court unlawfully taken by Mahan from their real owners Blue Sky Airlines in 2008 using forged bills of sale. When ordered to bring the aircraft back to Europe, Mahan apparently claimed they could not do so because they were being investigated by the Iranian authorities for fraud and the aircraft had to be kept in Iran.
